Narrator
Banksy: "I don't think Thierry played by the rules in some ways; but,then there are not suposed to be any rules. So, I don't really know what mine is. I mean I always used to encourage everyone I met to make art, I used to think everyone should do it.....I don't do that so much anymore."

Narrator
Shepard Fairey "I do think the whole phenomenon of uh Thierry's obsession with street art, becoming a street artist, a lot of suckers buying into his show and him selling a lot of expensive art, um, very quickly. It is anthropologically, sociologically it's a fascinating thing to observe and maybe there's some things to be learned from it."

Narrator
Thierry: "I feel good. I feel good as a Artist, to have a reputation, now. You know, an artist is not a guy that you see in one show and you can decide who it is or if he copies Banksy or if he copies uh Shepard Fairey or if he copies... It is about time. You'lll see in the time who I will be. Because, with time you will see my creativity. You will see if I am a real artist or not."

Narrator
Banksy: "Most artists spend years perfecting their craft finding their style. Thierry seems to have missed all those bits. I mean there's no one quite like Thierry. Even if his art looks quite a lot like everyones elses."

Narrator
Critic: I see this particuliar one reoccurring in so many different umm mediums..why does that one reoccur so many times?" Thierry: "Because, I think it part of the pop culture and you are all passed away and I'm here." Critic: "OK"
Banksy
He kind of the rightful heir to Andy Warhol in a way. Andy Warhol made a statement by repeating famous icons until they became meaningless. But, he was extremely iconic in the way he did it. But, then Thierry really made them meaningless.
