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.
Craig Dershowitz is the Chief Executive Officer of Artists 4 Israel and President of the Healing Arts Kits and Healing Ink.
Artists 4 Israel’s international network of artists are agents of change who place Art Over Hate. Their creativity and talents beautify society, uplift people, and enhance our understanding of Israel.
Healing Ink is the only organization in the world pledged to utilizing the power of tattoos to ease the physical and emotional pain caused by war and terrorism.
Mr. Dershowitz has worked with over 2,000 artists representing more than 32 different countries on 4 continents using art as a tool for social change and creating a new paradigm in Israeli advocacy. For his work, he was presented the Defender of Israel award by One Israel Fund, been honored by Prime Minister Netanyahu through Taglit, been named 36 under 36 by the Jerusalem Post, one of the 100 most influential Jewish minds by Algemeiner, and received the key to the city of Sderot. He most recently spoke at the AIPAC Policy Conference Plenary immediately after PM Netanyahu to an audience of 18,000 people. Craig got his start in the Jewish and pro-Israel field when, in his early 20s, he helped a Holocaust survivor write his memoirs.
