The longest piece of graffiti was over 4000 characters long and made by a student in the toilets of his college in China in 1915. (To do list – order extra nitromors and rubber gloves). The artist went on to be founder of the People’s Republic of China. He was known as Chairman Mao.
Nobody knows much about Banksy though, except that he is a Bristol born artist. He has become famous by people not knowing who he is. Nice irony – as is most of his work.
“People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish ……… but only if it is done properly.”
