Banksy is a graffiti artist who has become a political activist and her artwork commands very high prices. Her identity is unknown but if a piece of wall art is verified on her website, the walls they were painted on are often removed by specialists and re-sold for vast amounts of money.
Banksy's work is mostly sprayed artwork onto community or charity owned walls, so that they could gain an advantage financially from them.
She has an agency called Pest Control that sells some pieces of work and represents her work.
She became famous for using stencils so that the work can be sprayed quickly on a wall in order to get away rapidly, without getting caught by the police.
