Please note, this event has expired.
An investigation into the identity of Banksy, and the impact of their art on the world
From humble beginnings as a Bristol graffiti artist to perpetrator of a million dollar art stunt at Sotheby’s, Banksy‘s meteoric rise to fame has made them a household name and their art instantly recognizable.
But throughout their career, one question has dogged the celebrated provocateur: who is the person behind the name?
In a day and age where anonymity seems impossible, Banksy has managed to remain a mystery.
In Banksy Most Wanted, directors Aurélia Rouvier and Seamus Haley do a deep dive into the many differing theories about the artist’s true identity. Could Banksy be the lead singer of Massive Attack? An unassuming former Catholic schoolboy? The creator of virtual band Gorillaz?
Rouvier and Haley explore all of these possibilities through testimonials from collectors, journalists, agents, and fans. The result is an investigation not only into who Banksy is but also the deep impact their art has had on the world.
