Graffiti Artist Banksy Strikes Again With ‘No Future’
 
The mysterious world of Graffiti Artists has been once again set on
fire with a new mural appearing in Southampton, on the south coast of
England.  Rumors are mounting that it is a work by the world re-known
graffiti artist Bansky.
 
Yesterday on a wall in the city was spray painted with the words
screaming “No Future” above a picture of a small child holding a red
balloon.
 
Inside England Bansky is a invisible celebrity, his identity is not
known.  His most controversial work at home was in 2004 printing when
extremely high quality forgeries of ten pound notes were distributed
with the Queens head substituted with that of Lady Diana.
 
In 2007 graffiti covered London train and was removed by the
authorities, ironic given today images associated with Banksy are sought
after by some of our most famous celebrities including Kate Moss and
Christina Aguilina.  

It’s not only in England his works appear.  In 2005 pictures of
paradise appeared on the 680 kilometer divide between Gaza and Israel.
 He stated ironically that the wall was “the ultimate activity holiday
destination for graffiti writers.”

 

 
In the shadowy world of graffiti it is the culture for some artists
to rise above all, being regarded as hero’s, celebrities amongst the
young community.  Their identity is generally kept a secret, most likely
arising from the illegal nature of their work.  
 
Once an artist gets a reputation no-one involved will cover what has now gone from being graffiti to art. 
 
Yet no other graffiti artist has risen to fame as Banksy.   It’s
the combination of mystery, politics and satire that have chiseled his
name the book of the great artists of the modern world.
