Banksy Canvas Prints have soared in popularity over the last few years as Banksy's fame has escalated and fans want to get their hands on his most famous pieces of art at a reasonable price.
The cult of celebrity has helped raise Banksy's profile with big stars like Angelina Jolie and Christina Aguilera paying huge sums of money for original Banksy artworks. Christina Aguilera is reported to have spent £ 25,000 on three pieces of Banksy art in 2006 but that is nothing on Angelina Jolie who reportedly spent over £ 200,000 after visiting a Banksy art exhibition in Los Angeles.
Another major factor in the rise of popularity of Banksy is down to its ability to remain anonymous for over a decade. The great cloud of secrecy over who Banksy really is has led to speculation and press attention from the biggest news outlets around the world. Hugely reputable newspapers in the United Kingdom such as The Daily Mail and The Guardian have all guesstimated about who Banksy is, but I think it is safe to say we will not know who the masked graffiti artist is until he wants us to know who he is .
The docking nature in which Banksy confronts the establishment strikes a chord with the majority of people across the globe. The depiction of 'anarchist rats' and 'kissing coppers' does ruffle some feathers in the houses of parliament but certainly Banksy's greatest anti-establishment feat are the nine images he created on the Israeli West Bank barrier in the state of Palestine. This demonstration by Banksy shows the determination to spread his message will not be put to a stop by any authority no matter how violent or mighty.
When you put these three points together you can begin to see why Banksy is the artist on everyone's lips and also everyone's walls. I do not know what Banksy has in store for us around the corner but I am sure it will be spectacular and we will be begging for more.
