The Artist

Banksy

Bristol-born graffitist Banksy is the most famous and infamous street artist in the world. Despite the fact that he doesn’t create any work for the public to buy, or any pieces that can be displayed in a gallery, he is loved throughout the world for his spray on pieces of social commentary and taboo-busting images. Banksy’s true identity remains a secret and he prefer to stay in the shadows rather than take the acclaim for his work. He started using his trademark stencils as a way to create a piece quicker and so reduce the chances of being caught by the police. His works are displayed on walls, streets and bridges across his home town of Bristol and at other selected locations across the world. Fans have been known to try and take down walls, so they can own an original Banksy. A product of the British underground street scene of the 1990s, Banksy’s work is often darkly humorous, satirical and mocks the establishment. Some commentators have compared him to Blek le Rat, a French graffiti artist. Banksy himself says Bristol-based graffiti artist 3D was his original inspiration. In 2010 he directed a documentary film called ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop’, about a man obsessed with street art.
