Banksy is an English graffiti artist, political activist and film director whose real identity is unknown. His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humor with graffiti executed in a distinctive stenciling technique.
His works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world. Banksy's work grew out of the Bristol underground scene, which involved collaborations between artists and musicians.
Observers have noted that his style is similar to Blek le Rat, who began to work with stencils in 1981 in Paris. Banksy says that he was inspired by "3D", a graffiti artist who later became a founding member of Massive Attack, an English musical group.
