Yugster.com is feature 12 of Banksy’s most popular artwork on canvas prints. Despite not calling himself an artist, Banksy has been considered by some as talented in that respect; he uses his original street art form, combined with Banksy stencil style. Banksy, has hit the streets in London, Bristol, Australia, the USA, and just about everywhere in between. It's not only the curiosity of his identity that makes the artist famous, it's his impeccable political pieces and artwork that stir up discussions on the underlying themes. By calling attention to the issues depicted in his pieces, Banksy's controversial work requires people to think deeply about the issues he's attempting to bring to light.
Banksy has also caught the eye of many celebrities, including Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who are well known for adopting orphans. However, the Hollywood couple has proved they also have a keen eye for modern art. The glamourous pair managed to shell out a whopping £1 million on works by British "guerilla artist" Banksy at a contemporary art sale in London. The same artwork purchased by celebrities for thousands and millions of dollars, however, can be hanging on the wall of your own home for as low as $46.97.
