I've been fascinated by British Graffiti Artist Banksy ever since I read Colby Buzzell's piece on him in Esquire 5 years ago. I can't reccomend Colby's article enough and if you are still interested, read this New Yorker article on him.
After reading Colby's article, I moved to London for 3 months and heard lot's of cool underground stories about Banksy and he became even more real to me. That's why I'm so excited to see the documentary he produced called Exit Through the Gift Shop. It's playing at the Embarcadero in SF, who's with me?
