Today we will come to know a little bit more about that British urban guerrilla artist known as Banksy. This outstanding individual emerged as a dexterous culture jammer having made a name for himself with ingenious and controversial graffiti art. What’s actually interesting is that this street artist with an international reputation has never publicly revealed his identity. Little is known for sure about Banksy’s background. He is thought to have first appeared in Bristol, UK, however his artworks have appeared throughout various locations around the world.

As for Banksy’s style, he uses a distinctive layered stenciling technique that in particular helps him work more quickly and maintain the anonymity. He scrawled and attacked city walls to contrive thought-provoking, clever works that only his brilliant mind could come up with. Banksy’s wit and dark humor basically has a purpose since he mainly scoffs at consumer culture and grave human shortcomings that just ruin beautiful places and spotless minds. Among the rest, Banksy as well created a number of exhibits and installations to point out the life’s absurdity.

Right now, we’ll kick off showcasing that incredible artworks featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the whole world. But initially, some of his quotes to warm you up!
