Has Banksy Hit Portland?

Hard to say for sure, but my inclination is probably not.  However, Banksy-type pieces have been popping up in Stumptown across the city.  Still, the city is prettier for it even if the entire Banksy across America tour feels like a ploy to promote his pseudo-documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop.  Which, I just mentioned. It’s in theaters, go see it!

Right, I mean everytime a Banksy hits so and so city piece runs, aren’t we all just turned into clever marketing tools? See how I fell for it myself. Dang that’s crafty.

Anyway, there’s a sparrow on the corner of a building on Sandy and Ankeny? Stark? in SE, which isn’t a  Banksy, but everytime I drive by it, I always think of him.
