Call Off The Hunt, We're Pretty Sure We Know Who Banksy Is

Submitted by: rumham 1 month ago Entertainment

Craig Williams uncovered everything...

Robert Del Naja was a graffiti artist long before becoming the ‘creative director’ of sorts of Massive Attack, and is held in high regard as one of the pioneers of the stencil graffiti movement, helping to bring hip-hop and graffiti culture to Bristol in the 1980s. And his work has been featured on all of Massive Attack’s record sleeved to date.

It’s also worth noting that Massive Attack cancelled a headline performance at Banksy’s ‘Dismaland’ event in September, citing ‘technical difficulties’. Banksy himself asked attendees to the event to wear masks, with the idea for ‘The Masked Ball’ being that he could attend without his identity being revealed by the paparazzi in attendance.

my love for massive attak knows no bounds. yet im not entirely sold in this (yes i submitted this long ago). i hope it remains mystery. the sense of wonder is dying in modern times. instant information instant answers or atleast instant opinion is everywhere, it does not allow us silent contemplation of the different scenarios. and sometimes answers are scary thing. and so is the mystery.
