About the Designer
Banksy is a pseudonymous England-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter. His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti done in a distinctive stencilling technique. Such artistic works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world. Banksy's work was made up of the Bristol underground scene which involved collaborations between artists and musicians. According to author and graphic designer Tristan Manco and the book Home Sweet Home, Banksy "was born in 1974 and raised in Bristol, England. The son of a photocopier technician, he trained as a butcher but became involved in graffiti during the great Bristol aerosol boom of the late 1980s." Observers have noted that his style is similar to Blek le Rat, who began to work with stencils in 1981 in Paris, Jef Aerosol, who sprayed his first street stencil in 1982 in Tours (France), and members of the anarcho-punk band Crass, which maintained a graffiti stencil campaign on the London Tube System in the late 1970s and early 1980s. However, Banksy says he was inspired by 3D, a graffiti artist who later became a founding member of Massive Attack.

My husband really wanted this for his office. It looks just as nice in person and goes well with the the other items in his office. He is really happy with it.

I purchased this canvas print to complement two other prints from this artist. They look great together and blend perfectly with the grey wall color. You need to purchase and install your own picture hanging hardware. I used D-rings and picture wire.
Very cool fantasy art!

Reminds me of Dean Morrissey's art. Intriguing when you realize this can't be on Earth...

I did not think I would be getting a cheap print for what I paid for.
