Banksy has become a cultural icon with his signature street art and supreme anonymity. His creations are often effortlessly detailed or poignantly simple, appearing overnight and turning the side of a building into a canvas for personal, political and social messages.

While some have tried to track down the elusive artist, they have had little success, leaving the details of Banksy’s identity, and gender, up in the air. But regardless of whether Bansky is a woman or man, the art always embodies a specific vision and proves that Banksy is the artist of our generation. Instead of stiff portraits lining the walls of museums, the artist’s work sparks questions about today’s most pressing questions, like the technology-saturated world we live in, abuse of power, environmental depletion and more. Banksy always pulls this off in an aesthetically edgy fashion while pushing conversations forward.
