The most famously anonymous artist in the world, Banksy made the front pages when he auto-shredded Girl With Balloon during a 2018 Sotheby's auction. Known for his thought-provoking social commentary, Banksy's varied works include the Walled Off Hotel (with its view of the West Bank barrier), cover art for Blur's Think Tank album, and a gigantic graffiti piece about Brexit, in the UK port of Dover.

Did you know?

When he was Oscar-nominated for Exit Through The Gift Shop, Banksy was quoted as saying “the last time there was a naked man covered in gold paint in my house, it was me.”
