Oil Portrait Masters 11
Banksy is an anonymous England-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director of unverified identity. Their satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti executed in a distinctive stencilling technique. Banksy's works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world. Banksy's work grew out of the Bristol underground scene, which involved collaborations between artists and musicians. Using original, under-utilized techniques, he endeavors to give life to his previously-drawn characters with stencils, and unites them with items out of context which is even practically anachronistic in certain cases. Of course, his works do not just stop at street art . He also handles paintings on canvas and sculptures in the same perspective: upsetting collective conscience and striking hard at politics, societal phenomena, news, war and nonsense.
