BANKSY

Banksy has taken his provocative and inspiring brand of vandalism to sites worldwide, from the Sydney Opera House to Cuba. A media favourite for stunts like hanging his own work in the Tate gallery, but a popular star long before any of that. Banksy brought UK graphic art to an international audience through his street works, painted animals, screen prints, books, and was finally honoured in 2009 with a hometown show at the Bristol Museum shortly before the global release of his first feature film. Despite pleading not guilty to selling out, the artist concedes that he now does so from a bigger house than he used to.
