While cruising around the internet this morning checking out the latest news in the world, I somehow found myself on a list of the "Top 10 Guerilla Artists" according to Time Magazine. Well, one of them really caught my attention with his work. His name is Banksy (well, at least that's this street name). No one apparently knows his real name since he works as an anonymous graffiti artist. This British artist "has made his name adorning public buildings with his subversive stencils, sneaking his work into major museum collections and pulling pranks like leaving a life-size figure of a Guantánamo Bay detainee at Disneyland. Britain's Bristol Museum opened a major exhibition of his work in June. Several of his works have been pulled off the streets and sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars. But Banksy himself has managed to keep his true identity a secret — a fact that only enhances his cult appeal." (from Time.com)
