Maybe MBW is a collaboration between Fairey and Banksy. I can see both their styles in MBW’s artwork. Maybe they did it because they want to take the price tag away from their artworks, they wanted to do something to keep street art the way it was. No pricetags, doing street art for the sake of street art.

With the Disneyland scene as a clue, I think MBW is their white knight (as in the movie The Dark Knight), so they can keep doing what they’re doing. MBW may be the only way for them to stay anonymous as street artists.

edit: On second thought, maybe Fairey and Banksy are opening their doors for unknown street artists and helping them make profit as MBW?

Either way, I enjoyed watching Exit Through the Gift Shop. Fiction or not.
