One of the great mysteries of the Twenty-First Century has been revealed: the identity of the secretive “Banksy,” perhaps the most (in)famous of all guerrilla graffiti artists. Banksy, whose politically and socially critical works sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars to collectors around the world including the Pitt-Jolie family, is notoriously reclusive. The artist has never been publicly identified, and no previous photos of Banksy at work are known to exist. As you will see from the picture behind the page jump, the patron saint of taggers everywhere has good reason to have kept quiet about that highly inconvenient “day job.”

well i’ll be damned! she wasn’t an animatronic figure after all!
Everyone has a secret life!
I knew she carried more in her purse than the reported 4 items: comb, handkerchief, small gold compact, and a tube of lipstick (plus on Sundays an undisclosed amount
of money for the collection plate at church). She was hiding her spray paint bottles!
Damn straight! And if the cops ask to frisk her she hands it off to the Lady in Waiting. An old trick, but a good one.
I like how the Queen has her proper hat on even when tagging. Was she writing “Romanes eunt domus”? I guess sometimes the grammar is less important..
Good point, and that reminds me of something. Now we know why she always wears those gloves!
Wouldn’t that be “Goths?” Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and all that. Goths have major street cred.
Alas, I fear for your mortal soul when the avenging EaGlE reads this. He will go to any length to prove it isn’t HER! As usual, he will be wrong – – –
Brilliant “Life of Brian” hat tip, Railyard Toreador. There’s nothing that can be added that beats that. If only John Cleese were there to help her conjugate her verbs!
Latin in the comments section: my audience is more eruditer than anybody’s!
D’you think Phillip holds the ladder steady for her?
Too selfish. But that crazy Harry might!
