40 Bold Banksy Innovations

From Street Art Olympians to Sharply Sarcastic Street Art

— August 10, 2012 — Art & Design
These bold Banksy innovations show how ubiquitous this unknown and incredibly talented street artist has become.

Though he has a largely secretive existence and public persona, many can identify a Banksy piece upon first glance. His work is typically very critical, political and subversive, making the most of his creative outlet. His work is more visible than ever now, thanks to both the book he published as well as the widely popular documentary released, a subject of controversy in and of itself. Most recently, Banksy left some iconic Olympic-inspired pieces in London's center, leaving officials unsure of whether to leave or wipe away the works of art.

Always keeping people guessing in the best way possible, Banksy is a genius with a massive pop culture following that's sure to only grow with time.
