About After Banksy

Banksy (English, b. 1974) is a graffiti artist whose artwork has appeared throughout London and other locations around the world. Bansky's artwork is characterized by striking images, often combined with slogans. His work regularly engages political themes, satirically critiquing war, capitalism, hypocrisy and greed. Common subjects include rats, apes, policemen, members of the royal family, and children. In addition to his two-dimensional work, Banksy is known for his installation artwork. One of the most celebrated of these pieces, which featured a live elephant painted with a Victorian wallpaper pattern, sparked controversy among animal rights activists. He was the subject of a 2010 documentary, "Exit Through the Gift Shop," which examined the relationship between commercial and street art.
