Well-known graffiti artist Banksy has teamed up with international project artist BNE for World Water Day. The project is aimed to raise awareness of the world water crisis. Most of us debate which bottle of water to buy, while many people in the world don't even have a clean water stream to drink from, let alone tap water.

The collaborative is not revealing any of its art until World Water Day on Saturday March 22 at noon (Pacific Time). BNE took to social media to share that there will also be a special surprise. If the surprise has anything to do with Banksy's artwork, it is sure to be an amazing one.

BNE has collaborated with other artists in the past for the cause, like Shepard Fairey and Invader. All pieces are set to be limited edition; the money raised through the collaboration will benefit the non-profit organization, charity:water.
