A cult hero, one of the most celebrated & yet mysterious artists of his generation, considered a vandal by some & a genius to others – welcome to the world of Banksy.
Satirical graffiti artist, political activist, film director & painter. His dark & wonderfully subversive stencils are now national treasures across the world, with many of his artworks fetching hundreds of thousands of pounds at auctions.
But in truth very little is known about the man behind the art, simply because he has kept himself away from the media spotlight, uninterested in attention and happy being anonymous. That was until the Daily Mail in the UK, attempt to reveal more about one of the most elusive artists in the world
We previously posted an article featuring some of his fantastic work getting the animation treatment, but today we’ve selected some his most witty, interesting & most revered work.
Enjoy & do tell us which ones you’d happy have on your wall!
p.s. Oh and if you haven’t watched Exit Through the Gift Shop: A Banksy Film a film by Banksy himself, you really should. Even today people can’t decide if it’s a genuine documentary or a mockumentary.
