Interesting info about Banksy

Even after 20 years of being a world-famous artist, Banksy’s true identity was still unknown, largely because his works mostly include controversial images and messages. It was assumed that he travelled to different parts of the world to continue creating street graffiti. His travels include the United States, Australia, England, Jamaica, Canada, and even Israel. When some of his works are auctioned, they don’t necessarily come on canvases. Sometimes, you’ll find it on boards, wood, composite plastic, stone walls, panels, cardboards, bricks, and at times, metal car doors.
