Who is Bansky?

Posted in artists and architects by Sarah Gelbard on 21 September 2009

Banksy, a pseudonym for a popular graffiti stencilist from Bristol, has been spreading by word of mouth since the early years of the new millenium. His work is well-crafted, humourous, politically-motivated, ironic, and powerful – albeit illegal. This summer, he showcased his work at the Bristol Museum from June 13 to August 31, the largest showing of his work to date – yet he still remains shrouded in mystery: who is Banksy?

I really wanted to make the trip across the pond to go check it out, but never managed to get there. Luckily, “Banksy doesn’t believe in copyright, [so] visitors are welcome to take photos” – check it out!
