Every time people talk about Banksy, they usually imply a street artist who is widely known for his murals on walls. Not everyone, though, knows Banksy as a painter who once created paintings. The British anonymous shining star is renowned for his acridness and abrupt tricks, but when he painted a canvas in 2009, titled Devolved Parliament, the art world was seriously taken aback by such overwhelming news. What did inspire Banksy to push his limits, and how did his work become a world-famous painting?
As a full-fledged art movement, street art has been filling the streets of towns and cities around the world since the 1970s-1980s.

Someone would call it “vandalism” and a blatant violation of the law, whereas others would prefer names like “pieces of art” and “a new form of expression.” It is no wonder that the opinion on this is gravely divided. However, when it comes to Banksy, things magically turn upside down. So, is the famous street artist breaking the law?
