Who/ what is Banksy? Some suggest he is a mysterious artist; others say it is a group that performs street-art. One thing's for sure, though, Banksy's creativity and designs are un-mistakable, as are the unlikely places he/it chooses and the way he/ it challenges everything and everyone. For instance, in Mali someone noticed some graffiti art that seems to match a style we are already familiar with.
