Banksy is a pseudonymous England-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter.  World renowned for his satirical street art and subversive epigrams, which combine dark humor with graffiti, he displays his contempt for the government in labelling graffiti as vandalism.  Banksy displays his art on public surfaces such as walls, even going as far as to build physical prop pieces.  His paintings sell in the millions  - yet no one knows who he really is for sure.
