Banksy

Banksy is known as an anonymous England-based graffiti artist, political activist, and film director. His graffiti executed street art portrays a hint of dark humor, which has been featured on streets, walls and bridges of cities throughout the world. Banksy’s identity is currently unknown and it remains a mystery as it is carefully maintained. Recently, his works include a temporary art project called ‘Dismaland’ and his artwork was included in Paddle8's auction, alongside with artists such as Mr. Brainwash and KAWS.
