Banking on Banksy

Talk about coincidences. What are the odds that someone told me about Banksy last night and this morning I find a link to his work by chance on a friend's Facebook?

Banksy, if you don't already know, is a British graffiti artist. And he is a semi-anonymous artist whose identity is not publicized but may be known by some. So who is he? An anti hero? An anti social vandal? A mystery?

His works are tongue-in-cheek, anarchistic, politically cheeky, anti government and thought provoking graffiti, stencils, paintings and sculptures are not to be taken lightly. Looking at his great masterpieces you will know that he has more to say than just being labeled as a socially irresponsible vandal. Here are some of his works but they are only a smidgen of what more you can get from this elusive artist.
