The Graffiti Of Banksy

Banksy is a notorious English graffiti artist. His biography is of much controversy and myths. According the most common version of his real name Robin Banks, He was born in 1974 and he lives in Bristol. Banksy’s work was born out of the Bristol underground scene which involved collaborations between artists and musicians. His artworks are often satirical pieces of art on topics such as politics, culture, and ethics. His street art combines graffiti writing with a distinctive stenciling technique. His work can be seen in the film “Children of Men” [The image of two kissing policemen.]

  1. Thanks for the images. Banksy is sheer class! We have a Dutch street sculptor secretly leaving work around Amsterdam. Not quite Banksy, but also good.
