Who is Banksy?

Banksy is a street artist from Bristol, UK.Banksy,whose stencilled artwork appears in public places around the world, has never confirmed his identity.His artworks are often-satirical pieces of art on topics such as politics, culture, and ethics.Some believe that his stencilled graffiti provides a voice for those living in urban environments that could not otherwise express themselves, and that his work is also something which improves the aesthetic quality of urban surroundings; many others disagree, asserting that his work is simple vandalism.

Banksy’s art and the general controversy surrounding his work have had a remarkable effect on the world community. For the first time, a street artist has garnered the attention of the mainstream media(quoted from WebUrbanist site)
