Banksy

Banksy, known for his striking and memorable style in street art, is otherwise a complete mystery. Many have claimed to know the true identity of Banksy, but none have been definitive to date. All that is known about him is that he is a UK-based artist, who gained widespread notoriety around 2003 with his street art.  A legend amongst street artists and critics alike, Banksy creates controversial street art, often masking aggressive political statements with cute characters and funny imagery. Known to be vocally against the organized art world as a whole, Banksy's anonymity has led to both positive and negative reactions from fellow artists, critics, and authorities. Despite the mystery, Banksy has definitely been one of the most influential artists of our time.
