Banksy

Banksy is a well-known pseudo-anonymous British graffiti artist. He is believed to be a native of Yate, Gloucestershire, near Bristol[1] and to have been born in 1974, but there is substantial public uncertainty about his identity and personal and biographical details. His artworks are often-satirical pieces of art on topics such as politics, culture, and ethics. His street art medium combines graffiti writing with a distinctive stencilling technique. You can see his art in cities all over the world. When I went to New York City I saw about 5 of his pieces, they’re awesome to see.

Think outside the box, collapse the box, and take a fucking sharp knife to it.

I know they’re small, his work is amazing so it’s really hard to pick just 2 or 3 to show.
