Banksy is the world’s most successful street artist. But who is hiding behind this pseudonym? The Rosenhang Museum in Weilburg, Germany tried to get to the bottom of the phenomenon.
Who is Banksy? This question is not at all new. Banksy is believed to be a male, but this elusive artist can still appear to be a woman or even a collective of artists. Despite some supposedly known biographical information about the origin and age of Banksy, with some degree of certainty, we can only talk about his creations. For example, 25 of his works were presented at an exhibition at the Rosenhang Museum, titled “Who the fuck is Banksy?” The exhibit was on view from September 25, 2020 to February 15, 2021.
