The Aura of Anonymity

Reknown Graffiti Artist Unmasked: Banksy Identified - Trendhunter

I'm actually sad that Banksy's been unmasked. It's not that he's nothing like what we expected, which is what we expected. Rather, it takes a bit of aura away from the mystery of his art. Now the interviews will roll out, he'll appear on TV's across the world and every alternative blog out there will try to get a piece on him. Banksy always seemed careful not to over-expose himself. And now that's gone.
