Banksy

BANKSY

Banksy is a British street artist from Bristol. Whilst he is maybe most famous for his street based stencil graffiti work he has also put on a wide variety of shows in unusual locations, released a film 'Exit Through The Gift Shop' and conducted many well publicised pranks such as the re-branding of Paris Hilton's CD in record stores throughout the UK. 

This site features a collection of over 600 unique photos of his work but it's not his 'official' website, if you want that you need to visit banksy.co.uk

If you are new to this site and want to see all the Banksy pictures one by one start here but be warned - its going to take a while! Otherwise just use the links on the far right to view individual  picture galleries including street work, exhibitions and other appearances.
