British 🇬🇧 1974 - present

Banksy is a pseudonymous England-based street artist known for his satirical and political graffiti. Operating anonymously since the 1990s, Banksy’s work combines dark humor with stencil techniques and has appeared globally. His art often critiques capitalism, war, and authority, sparking discussions and controversies. Despite his fame, Banksy maintains his anonymity, influencing the contemporary art scene profoundly.

Most of Bansky's early work was done freehand. He began using stencils in the late 1990s. Banksy once hung his own artwork, titled "Crimewatch UK Has Ruined the Countryside for All of Us," in Tate Britain without permission, showcasing his knack for blending art with activism and pranksterism

The greatest crimes in the world are not committed by people breaking the rules but by people following the rules. It's people who follow orders that drop bombs and massacre villages.

Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.
