Banksy

Britain’s now-legendary “guerilla” street artist, Banksy, has painted the walls, streets and bridges of cities around the world. He not only smuggled his works into four of New York’s most important art museums. He also “hung” his work at London’s Tate Gallery and decorated the barrier in the West Bank with satirical images. Banksy’s identity remains unknown, but his work is unique. His prints sell for up to 65,000 dollars.

Banksy is a UK-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director with an unknown identity. Evidence from a newspaper survey in 2008 and a study with a geographical profile in 2016 suggest that he is Robin Gunningham.

His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humor with graffiti in an incomparable stencil technique. His political and social commentaries shown on streets, walls and bridges of cities around the world. Banksy’s works were created from the Bristol underground scene, where artists and musicians work together. Observers have found that his style reminds of Blek le Rat, who began working with stencils in Paris in 1981. Banksy says he was inspired by “3D”, a graffiti artist who later became a founding member of Massive Attack, an English musical group.

Banksy and his work

He shows his art on publicly visible surfaces, such as walls and homemade physical props. Banksy doesn’t sell photographs or reproductions of his street graffiti, but art auctioneers are known for trying to sell his street art locally. Banksy’s first film, “Exit Through The Gift Shop”, called “the world’s first street art disaster movie” made it’s debut at the Sundance Film Festival 2010 and was released in the UK on 5 March 2010. In January 2011 it was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary. In 2014 he was named Person of the Year at the Webby Awards 2014.
