Who is Banksy!
When it comes to street art, there's no getting around him: Banksy, probably the most famous and most mysterious graffiti artist in the world. According to estimates, the British artist, who is about 45-50 years old, has successfully kept his identity a secret. His works, however, conquer internationally not only the streets, but also the auction houses, and highly successful: He is currently considered one of the most expensive artists of the present!
Banksy is without doubt the undisputed king of street art, a brilliant mind and star artist who touches people and speaks from their souls with his sometimes ironic, sometimes political, but always poetic works. When the city of Bristol had its citizens vote in 2009 on whether Banksy's works should be removed from the cityscape, 97 percent decided against it. A clear vote for his art. Banksy is a star far beyond the borders of the art market. In 2010, Time magazine included him for the first time on its list of the 100 most influential people in the world, alongside personalities such as Barack Obama, Steve Jobs and Lady Gaga.
There's nothing more dangerous than someone who wants to make the world a better place.
Remember it's always easier to get forgiveness than permission.
Nothing is black and white.
Any fame is a by-product of making something that means something.
