Banksy - street artist

This is one artist I totally love. His art is controvertial, political and critical. Acording to Wikipedia, Banksy is a pseudonymous British graffiti artist. He is believed to be a native of Yate, South Gloucestershire, near Bristol and to have been born in 1974, but his identity is unknown. Some people asserts that Banksy's work is simply vandalism. In 2004, Banksy hung a painting of the Monalisa with a yellow smiley face at Louvre.

Banksy has several books and, recently, he released his first film, Exit Through The Gift Shop, at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
Ever since I saw a book of his works, I feel in love with his street art. I think is uneasy and funny!
