Recently watched the street-art documentary, “Exit Through the Gift Shop”, the work of Los Angeles based Frenchman Thierry Guetta. He gets the idea that he would like to film street artists in the process of creating their work, which is so interesting to watch. I enjoyed it very much. Almost loved every single minute of the movie except for the parts where they disguised Banksy’s voice, only because I couldn’t make out what he was saying…  in the beginning.

Anyway, one of the artists featured in the doccie is Bansky. He’s really, quite good. He is an England-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter whose works have been featured on street walls and bridges of cities throughout the world. Some of his creations below:-
