Banksy

Image

Banksy is one of the more politically active artists of our generation. No one really knows his true identity, or if he is a single entity or not. Based in the United Kingdom, many of Banksy’s works are satirical, satirizing pop culture or other arising issues, such as national security. He was reportedly born in 1974 in Bristol, England.

Banksy is, in my regards, one of the best street artists of all time, if not the best. His art essentially turns vandalism into something that everyone can at least appreciate. He also has directed a film, Exit Through the Gift Shop, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2010.
