I am Banksy!

No, no, I am Banksy!

You get the point, the identity of the artist formerly known as Banksy, described by one of my professional colleagues, as the great visual satirist of our generation has been outed by the Mail on Sunday (oh, the glamour.)

It turns out the elusive artist is called Robin and went to to a nice school. It’s a shame the paper couldn’t bring itself to talk about what Robin of Banksy draws because the message is really more important than the medium - or the artist.

I'd like to encourage everyone reading this to claim to be Banksy too and then, perhaps, we can confuse the Mail on Sunday and help the artist retain his desired wealthy anonymity. The clever so-and-so.
