Who is Banksy? Or more accurately, what is Banksy? According to the internet, “Banksy” is an anonymous England-based street artist, political activist, and film director whose satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humor with graffiti executed in a distinctive stenciling technique. His seemingly random art installations regularly make headlines every year, and many illustrate the Israel-Palestine conflict in a way no artist has been able to before.
Join us as we discuss Banksy’s growth as an artist, how he found his unique voice, and his trajectory towards supporting Israel.
- Go beyond common knowledge of the most famous street artist of all time.
- Learn to interpret key elements of Banksy’s unique style and strategy.
