There is not much known about Banksy except he’s a street artist and political activist who’s face has never been seen and he lives in London. His work has become iconic and has appeared in different cities around the world. He creates visually diverse images ranging from a mouse riding an exactor blade to a bottle of champagne in a carousel. His work has a social economic relevance that leaves us to ponder our perceptions of the world.
His art is stenciled images which are primarily sprayed on surfaces.
Banksy is an original and has managed to keep his identity secure. His art is sought after and copied and stolen all the time.
One thing seems very clear to me, his art is for all people of the world not just the elite.
