Who is Banksy?

Banksy is a street artists; a legendary street artist. Actually, I think it's fair to say he has transcended the "street" artist moniker and should be thought of as a genius artist in his own right. This is a guy who traveled to Israel and risked being shot so he could graffiti the wall/barrier that Israel built to fence in Palestine.

Of course the best way to know Banksy is to check out his art.

Banksy Film - Exit Through The Gift Shop (With Torrent)

In my last post I talked about the street artist Banksy. Well, he recently was the subject of a fantastic movie / documentary called "Exit Through The Gift Shop". It starts out as a film about street art and artists, particularly Banksy, but the movie ends up being more about the guy making the movie who eventually (with some prodding from Banksy) becomes a street artist himself.

The movie is smart and funny; I would even call it genius.
