Banksy is a British graffiti artist. He is believed to be a native of Yate, near Bristol and to have been born in 1974 but his identity is unknown.
His artworks are incredible satirical pieces of art on topics such as politics, culture, and ethics.
His street art, which combines graffiti writing with a distinctive stencilling technique, is similar to Blek le Rat, who began to work with stencils in 1981 in Paris and members of the anarcho-punk band Crass who maintained a graffiti stencil campaign on the London Tube System in the late 1970s and early 1980s. His art has appeared in cities around the world.
Banksy’s first film, Exit Through The Gift Shop, billed as “the world’s first street art disaster movie”, made its debut at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. Here is the trailer :
