-However, according to Tristan Manco, Banksy ''"was born in 1974 and raised in Bristol, England. The son of a photocopier engineer, he trained as a butcher but became involved in graffiti during the great Bristol aerosol boom of the late 1980s."'' His artworks are often [[satirical]] pieces of art which encompass topics from politics, culture, and ethics. His [[street art]], which combines graffiti with a distinctive [[stencil]]ling technique, has appeared in [[London]] and in cities around the world.

-He has moved on to producing [[Subversion (politics)|subvert]]ed paintings; one example is [[Monet]]'s ''Water Lily Pond'', adapted to include urban detritus such as litter and a [[shopping trolley]] floating in its reflective waters, another is [[Edward Hopper]]'s ''[[Nighthawks]]'', redrawn to show that the characters are looking at an English football hooligan dressed only in his [[Union Flag]] underpants, who has just thrown an object through the glass window of the cafe. These oil paintings were exhibited at a twelve day exhibition in Westbourne Grove, London in 2005.
