Bombed Village by Banksy
Bombedy Village by Banksy

British tabloid Daily Mail tries to take a negative spin on this story, but I don’t see how his “middle class” upbringing could be in any way characterized as a disappointment. Link (via Time Magazine, by way of What Is The What)

But now, after an exhaustive year-long investigation in which we have spoken to dozens of friends, former colleagues, enemies, flatmates and members of Banksy’s close family, The Mail on Sunday has come as close as anyone possibly can to revealing his identity.

And far from being a radical tearaway from an inner-city council estate, the man we have identified as Banksy is, perhaps all too predictably, a former public schoolboy brought up in middle-class suburbia.
