(BBC-US)   No, Banksy is *not* the former host of a children's TV show that featured art who also happened to play in a band whose gig dates and Banksy's art appearances just happen to line up. Totally a coincidence   (bbc.com) divider line

So this is like pro wrestling, right? We all know 'Banksy' is a bunch of people but we pretend it's one dude.

How many pro wrestlers are actually several different people? Is that why in Mexico they wear masks?

Bob Ross died in the mid-90s, roughly the same time period that Banksy rose to prominence. Bob obviously faked his death to become a graffiti artist.

Counterpoint: Not one happy tree in any of Banksy's art.

WTF is a Banksy?

It seems really odd that there has been no video film of him. I thought the UK was filled with cameras?

Currently or formerly? Because I have some need to tell you.

I think often he uses the idea of hiding in plain sight. I'm sure I saw an article a few years back claiming to show him at work, wearing a high-vis and a hard hat, erecting a construction tent to conceal his work.

Brief Google doesn't find what I'm thinking of so I could have hallucinated that.

I thought the UK was filled with cameras?

This is a kind of persistent myth. The vast majority of CCTV cameras are privately operated, so there's no Big Brother central like the myth suggests, and any urban area of similar density to a UK city is probably going to have similar numbers of CCTV cameras.

Plus, between dashcams, police bodycams, mobile phone cameras and the likes of Ring doorbells, you can expect to be filmed quite a lot in public wherever you are these days.

No, "Banksy" gets a lot of help from other people, but he's just one guy. Banksy's my uncle, you'll never guess who he is.
