    There is much argument as to whether he’s an artist or a vandal.
    Many of his paintings feature rats.
    He uses stencils because they save time.
    His anti-capitalist art sells for thousands of pounds.
    He got in trouble with animal rights activists for painting on animals.
    He feuded with another graffiti artist King Robbo, and the two ended up painting over each other’s artwork.
    He stays in the public eye by staying out of it.
    The owners of the buildings he paints on without permission often end up keeping and protecting his work.
    He painted over one of his own works in the London underground with a new work honoring another graffiti artist who had been hit by a subway.
    He convinced his parents he's a house painter.
    He has a sense of humor about his fame, saying, ‘I am unable to comment on who may or may not be Banksy, but anyone described as ‘being good at drawing’ doesn’t sound like Banksy to me.’
