Banksy is an English-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director. His works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges. of cities throughout the world.
By 2000 he had turned to the art of stencilling after realising how much less time it took to complete a work.

Banksy's stencils humorous images are occasionally combined with slogans. The message is usually anti-war, anti-capitalist, anri-imperialism or anti-establishment. He also criticized celebrities, such as Paris Hilton.
Some of Banksy’s most famous works are his campaigns, always created in a particular context and location. His fake 10 pound banknotes with Princess Diana in the place of the Queen are a prized collectible today…

Interest in Banksy rose with the release of the 2010 documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop. The film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, was nominated for an Academy Award.
