Banksy is a famous artist, most well-known for his stencil-based graffiti. He was born in Bristol, England in the mid '70s. That's really all we know about him. While [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/31/banksy-identity_n_4179303.html?utm_hp_ref=arts a photograph of him unmasked has turned up]], his real name remains unknown. Despite this he has become quite popular, sold paintings, put on gallery shows, in 2005 released a photo book of his work, ''Wall and Piece'', and in 2010 made an Oscar-nominated documentary film, ''Film/ExitThroughTheGiftShop''. He has also been immortalized in the Music/TheyMightBeGiants song "Celebration".

* AntiVillain: While he is doing illegal artwork and many cite him as menace to society, many love his art and talk about him like Robin Hood. In fact he might be an AntiHero at this point.
