The British street art artist Banksy is one of England’s most famous artists, despite his hitherto secret identity. Despite a lack of biographical details, it is assumed that Banksy was born around 1974/1975 in Bristol, where he began his career as a street artist. Banksy lives and works in England.
Banksy’s work is a visual critique of culture and society, with an unmistakable style. He uses prefabricated stencils that are sprayed with different colors. His works are largely site- or situation-related and are often supplemented by multimedia elements.
