The Smithsonian Magazine has an article on Banksy

The February 2013 number of the Smithsonian Magazine has an in depth arrticle on Banksy and his art. by Will Elsworth-Jones: http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/The-Story-Behind-Banksy-187953941.html?c=y&page=1. This revealing article tells the story of Banksy’s rise to fame (and fortune) without delving into the issue of identity, though it does reveal that Robin Banks initially signed his work “Robin Banx” before shortening his signature to plain Banksy, seemingly confirming the rumour that his full name is Robin Banks. apparently many of Banksy’s outdoor works have disappeared or been removed in recent years. We really need a detailed list of cities and street addresses where his work may be found.
