Artist: Banksy

I'm sure many of you have heard of Banksy, even if you haven't you have very likely seen some of his work. Banksy is perhaps the most well known street artist there is. He does not limit his work to the street, but that is where he got his start and where he continues to do the majority of his work. His art is often thought provoking, political, tongue in cheek, it frequently challenges society and norms, but on occasion it's simply goofy and fun. Some pieces are remarkably complex, while others are almost childlike in their simplicity. Most frequently, his pieces carry an anti-war, anti-capitalism, or anti-establishment message. It is his ability to abstract the ideas behind his work that truly makes his art stand out, that combined with a remarkable talent with stencils.

Here are a few of my favorite pieces…
