You know. If you dig enough around the net you can find him. Not that hard at all. Or maybe I’m just good at tracking info down on the net. Either way here’s the story.
Hip British graffiti artist Bansky, whose true identity has long remained a mystery, was thrust into the spotlight Wednesday after the publication of a snatched picture allegedly of him at work.
A man believed to be Banksy, whose works sell for tens of thousands of pounds around the world, was caught on camera working on a new picture in an east London street, according to The Times.
His latest work depicts a huge sunflower, formed by diverting the double yellow parking lines from a street gutter across a pavement up onto the side of a house, flanked by a picture of a paint-roller wielding artist.
But the artist himself was believed to have been caught at work for the first time, by a passerby who took a picture on his mobile phone camera, the daily said.
“We never confirm or deny whether any image shows Banksy,” a spokesman for the artist told The Times, which printed the photo of a black-haired man in jeans a camouflage jacket, with a pollution-protecting mask on his head.
