Art, and Banksy

I don't mean to brag, but I have a very special talent.  I can blow bubbles.  Straight off my tongue. 


Which when you think about it, is a very clever practice.  Out of nowhere, voila!  A bubble appears!
It's art.
Kind of like Banksy.  But on a smaller scale, and less anonymous.   

Like Banksy, I have taken my art all around the world.
I have stood in awe of many important historical monuments.
And after sharing my art with them, I like to think that they have also stood in awe of me.

Angkor Wat, Cambodia
Eiffel Tower, France
Taj Mahal, India
Shwedagon Pagoda, Burma

Bansky once quoted "All artists are willing to suffer for their work".

And oh!  How I have suffered for mine.

There are people in the world who think blowing bubbles is just another form of spitting.  They think that just because the spit is spherical and attractive doesn't make it any more acceptable.

I have been called names, like "vulgar spitting person".
I have been asked to stop creating my art indoors, or doing installations on the people sitting next to me.
I have even been spat upon!  (Which is vulgar).

But I am an artist.  I will suffer.  And I will carry on.

Like Banksy.  Because that's what we do.

Me and Banksy.*  We carry on.
