Who is Banksy? Is it one man? Is it a team of people? All that and more remains a mystery, but Banksy stands out as a true artist of our generation. His original brand echoes in each piece. His art is accessible to all and can be found in museums and street corners alike.

Synonymous with controversy, his politically charged art and prolific body of work help land this guerrilla artist on our list of inspirations. Above all the criticism and accolades, though, it’s his message: ‘that anyone can create art,’ that speaks true to our creative mission.
