I realise that he's done this to benefit the local NHS and that's great etc., but I'm just gonna say... it's not really his best work... bit route one.

And I've got a bit of an issue with constantly calling health workers heroes and angels. They definitely deserve the recognition, but it's not their role to be selfless, sacrificing altruists. It just burdens them unfairly by expecting them to operate in adversity.

I think they used to film Art Attack in the Maidstone tv studios. I saw them setting up one of his 'installations' in a local shopping mall. Didn't spot any rats with machine guns.

If you enjoy Banksy's work can I just point in the direction of Cold War Steve.
Very prolific and usually on the money.

No connection, wish there was, just a fan.

This is just the sort of rumour that everyone wants to propogate too. :)

Does anyone really care?

Not really a fan, but I think some mysteries are best left as mysteries.  I don't get the need to out everybody anonymous...

Because then the sh*t stirring press and all the ar**holes on social media can pick apart everything he/she has ever done and make his/her life hell.

I think it would be nice if it's a mystery we never find out. My guess is it's a collective of people.

Ppl like to know don't they, or it's like the person who says "I saw the twist coming a mile off" when they see a film, they like the one upmanship.

Surprised he/she/they have stayed anonymous this long

Have to admit that if a Banksy appeared on my wall, my instinct would be to complain before whitewashing it over.

We actually have some street art that looks like a Banksy but is probably a copycat, as why would anyone come here unless they had to (and not seen Massive Attack up here anywhere)...

Actually we may have two as that link isn't the one I was thinking about...
