Street art: anti-authoritarian or commercial?

Street art is hot: everywhere, even in stylish art galleries, you encounter graffiti, stenciling and yarn bombing. The phenomenon was made famous by Banksy but we now see increasingly more street artists becoming commercial. Perhaps street art is successful but is the art world still critical enough? What do street artists think of the grey area between street art and other kinds of art? And how anti-authoritarian is street art if it is neatly executed?
