HAS BANKSY’S IDENTITY BEEN REVEALED?


 

HAS BANKSY’S IDENTITY BEEN REVEALED?

An old TV interview found in the archives might reveal the identity of the elusive and anonymous artist Banksy.

Banky’s identity has remained a top secret throughout his career; with the only viable description being from a 2003 interview with The Guardian where the journalist described him as, “white, 28, scruffy casual – jeans, T-shirt, a silver tooth, silver chain and silver earring. He looks like a cross between Jimmy Nail and Mike Skinner of the Streets”.

In this new unearthed interviewed filmed for ITV News, the man believed to be Banksy is shown stencilling artwork onto the wall and painting an image; one being the Kill More piece which has been confirmed to be one of Banksy’s works.

The person believed to be Banksy said in the interview, “It’s hard to make an entertaining picture at the best of times but at least if you have something that wanders around and licks its nose and urinates in front of you it’s going to make the picture a bit more interesting”.

 

The most common form of street art Banksy uses are stencils. These are often in the form of multi-layered stencils and/or combined with other media sources, such as spray-paint. He also includes anything found in the streets like street signs and other objects to convey his message by crafting beautiful street art installations. His artwork is often satirical and combines dark humor with graffiti and also spread messages across art, philosophy, and politics.

Arguably the most controversial street artist in the world, Banksy has developed an entire art subculture devoted to his works. Banksy’s art can impact any location at any given moment. His identity remains unknown, even after over 20 years of being involved with the graffiti scene. He has worked with many different types of street art media and street art types. His work not only includes many powerful, often controversial images, but they may also be found throughout the Internet as viral images.
