He is an anonymous street artist from England who turned graffiti into the work of a genius.
He also has traveled the world where his work falls in a legal gray area. It is often taken down days after completed.
(If you did not know any of this do a GIS for Banksy)
I watched the documentary film he directed “Exit Through the Gift Shop” last night. It was nominate for the Academy Award for best documentary last year.
Although it makes a statement, I can’t help but wonder if it is a total farce.
With the humor he portrays though his art, the whole movie could be one big joke.
If you have Netflix and 90 minutes to kill, check the film out and let me know.
Here’s the trailer in case you have second thoughts.
