At the moment, you could say that Banksy is one of the most recognised and most successful artists in the world, due to his unique style and the controversial nature of his work, and I am a very big fan of his work.
It is easy to see why there are many impersonators of Banksy's style, since it has proved as commercially successful as it has so far.
Many have guessed at the true identity of Banksy and no doubt he will keep people guessing for a very long time. Is he a genuine graffiti producing hoody, or is he a very clever geek with an amazing business brain? Who knows? The mystery of his identity really doesn't matter anymore now that his legend has been well and truly established in the art world today.
