He is a street artist who is believed to be born in Bristol around 1979 who rose to fame in the 1990s. He began in a graffiti gang that went by the name DryBreadZ crew. At first, most of his work was done freehand and later, in the late 90s, he predominantly started using stencils. In the beginning, he was known only in the London and Bristol area, eventually becoming internationally known.
He produces pieces which reflect the problems of our time often using copyright material, sparking controversy. He uses satirical images to portray war, capitalism, greed and environmental issues. His subjects are often animals, the royal family or children. His work on the West Bank barrier between Israel and Palestine in 2005 brought him significant media attention. He went from a street art graffiti artist to a sought figure. Interest in him escalated after the 2010 documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop (It was nominated for an Academy Award at the Sundance). His identity remains unknown.
