The Banksy Story

12:54 PM GMT+1 on July 16, 2023

    The Banksy Story - Why has Banksy become a household name whilst other graffiti artists hardly get a mention? It must be more than just the fact that very few people know exactly who  he is. In this new ten-part series, superfan James Peak charts his rise, by speaking to people who love him, have worked with him or have stumbled across him working by accident.

    However, making a series about Banksy doesn’t come without obstacles.  “Banksy is entirely anonymous and he doesn’t confirm or deny anything,” says Peak in the opening episode. “So verifiable facts are few and far between. We can’t check if anything anyone tells us about him is true or not and because he is of interest to millions of people, I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one making things up.”
