BANKSY, famous anonymous

A street artist as mysterious as he is popular, Banksy covers the walls of the world with his stencils and collages full of politics, humor, and poetry. The little girl with a balloon, the well-hung lover or the kissing policemen: so many iconic works that have marked the mind for over 20 years! Committed, Banksy multiplies projects, like his mission to acquire Reading Prison in England. Famous for imprisoning Oscar Wilde, the historic monument, disused since 2013, could be transformed into an artistic refuge thanks to funds from the sale of the stencil of the prisoner who escaped, the mural still visible on the wall of the prison.
