Igniting his career as one of the most inamitable artists of our time Banksy has delighted, thrilled and chilled us with his controversial style. His infamous style and reputation have kept him at the head of the scene for the last twenty years.
His provocative stance gives birth to an amalgam wit, philosophy, politics, narcissism and sociology. Each Banksy piece can be identified from its natural combination of dark humour and skilful stencilling work. The true beauty of his work has to be that it can emerge anywhere, at any time challenging issues of capitalist greed.
Banksy’s identity remains unknown and although now illegal his work is still sold in galleries and auctions worldwide.
