Banksy is one of the most famous anonymous street artists in the world. The person behind this amazing pseudonym wants to keep his personal life a secret. His graffiti, which mixes aerosol and stencil techniques, takes us into a world steeped in humor and irony about today's society.
His art work began to be seen in the 1990s on the walls of Bristol and in the Shoreditch area of London. When Banksy unveils a new work, he never hesitates to make jokes and performances in the presentation of his creation.
In 2015, Banksy created a large-scale installation, Dismaland Bemusement Park, a working theme park that immerses the public in a satirical parody of Disneyland, with comments on wealth distribution, sexism and the British government. This park founded and managed by Banksy himself was operational between August and September 2015.
Banksy lives and works in England and has not finished surprising us.
