Product Description

Banksy – The end

Banksy is a pseudonymos English gravity artist, political activist, film director, and painter.

Banksy, Britain’s now-legendary „guerilla“ street artist, has painted the walls, streets, and bridges of towns and cities throughout the world. Not only did he smuggle his pieces into four of  New York City’s major art museums, he’s also „hung“ his work at London’s Tate Gallery and adorned Israel’s West Bank barrier with satirical images. Banksy’s identity remains unknown, but his work is unmistakable—with prints selling for as much as $45,000.

Banksy is an England-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director of unverified identity. Evidence from a newspaper investigation in 2008 and a study using geographic profiling in 2016 suggest that he is Robin Gunningham.

[1][2] His satirical street art and subversiveepigrams combine dark humour with graffiti executed in a distinctive stenciling technique. His works of political and social commentaryhave been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world.[3] Banksy’s work grew out of the Bristol underground scene, which involved collaborations between artists and musicians.[4] Observers have noted that his style is similar to Blek le Rat, who began to work with stencils in 1981 in Paris.[5][6] Banksy says that he was inspired by “3D”, a graffiti artist who later became a founding member of Massive Attack, an English musical group.[7]

Banksy displays his art on publicly visible surfaces such as walls and self-built physical prop pieces. Banksy does not sell photographs or reproductions of his street graffiti, but art auctioneers have been known to attempt to sell his street art on location and leave the problem of its removal in the hands of the winning bidder.[8] 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.[9] The film was released in the UK on 5 March 2010.[10] In January 2011, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary for the film. In 2014, he was awarded Person of the Year at the 2014 Webby Awards.

He displays also a lot of signs in Bristol. Also the sign Banksy – the End with the Rat
