It's interesting to think that even if Banksy's identity was revealed, there'd still be a high chance that it'd be a Banksy-piece. As many people have pointed already, Banksy has become his own ultimate artwork. More than an artist, he's become a concept.
What are Banksy's foremost forms of art? I know the majority of his work is using spray paint and stencils, and that he has done work in museums, but what else does he do? Does he ever work digitally or paint with brushes?
Yes the majority of his work is spray paint and stencils, however he has experimented with acrylics too (for instance the reworks of historic paintings) and not to be forgotten he made a movie and now and then he makes a digital snippet (eg. Dumbo). More recently he has been doing more and more installations.
How has Banksy (along with other street artists) changed graffiti and the way that people look at it?
He has single-handedly changed the perception of street art in general. With the uprising of the internet his artworks became extremely popular and that gave other street artists a lot of attention and visibility. You can say Banksy announced a very important chapter in the book of street art, bringing it to a bigger audience.
This blog was started way before Banksy was so omnipresent on the internet. There was a need for somebody to tell the people when Banksy made something new and we decided to do so. Nowadays the blog is still running since we are still truly passionate about street art and Banksy. If you have any questions about Banksy or street art in particular, you can contact the admin of the blog on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Cheers!
How do people steal the murals? It seems like it'd be a crime and I'm not sure how they would remove it from a building. Thanks!
They literally break down the wall and cut out the artwork. Sometimes in cooperation with the owner of the building that chooses to sell it. Banksy always sees it as a gift to the community and does not see any money once it’s sold on an auction.
