Does The Work Aspire Or Does It Inspire?

Sticker seen near the corner of E. Houston St. 
and Lafayette Street in NYC

After months of coaxing by friends and colleagues, I finally watched Banksy's 2010 film on street art titled Exit Through The Gift Shop this past weekend. All I could think of while watching the self-fulfilling self promotion piece (some would say mockumentary) was the words found on the sidewalk sticker (creator unknown) illustrated above. You and your boys have "won" B., but ... so what? 

What a burden it is for any serious artist to still care about the art world today.
