banksy accessories is a British graffiti artist, political activist, vandal and street artist, active in the UK since the late 1990s. His political graffiti and subversive street art combine political commentary with dark humour executed on a unique stencil style. Known for his politically-charged graffiti, which often criticizes war, racism and classism, Banksy has created a name for himself in recent years as an award-winning street artist in the UK. Banksy was born Brian McFadden and grew up in a council flat in north London, where he first developed his interests in graffiti.
In addition to his street graffiti, Banksy also created numerous books, posters, sculptures, and illustrations. His most famous book is entitled The Wicker Man. In it, Banksy depicts a society run by the rich, a society that includes everything from the rich people who own cars, expensive clothes, fancy clothes, homes, mansions, to poor people who are forced to live in squalid tents on public places. Another book called Wall and Piece is an illustrated, text-based diary, revealing a young woman’s experiences in an Israeli prison.
As an underground artist, Banksy has gained a lot of respect for his bold graffiti and provocative street artwork. He has been invited to speak at universities and schools, as well as the Tate Modern, where he displayed many of his works, including the infamous Warhol portrait, ‘Roman Holiday’. He has also won numerous awards and recognitions from his work. His work is often covered in prestigious publications and magazines, as well as being featured on numerous popular television shows.
