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 an alleged 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".
