Banksy is a graffiti and street artist master, political activist and an Oscar and Academy Award nominated film director whose real identity is unknown. He is famous for stenciled graffiti on buildings and walls across Africa and around the world. Banksy was selected as Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in 2010.

The first modern graffiti artist is widely considered to be Cornbread, a high school student from Philadelphia Pennsylvania in the United States, who in 1967 started tagging to get the attention of a girl he loved.

Back in the 1970s, graffiti was an illegal counterculture associated with the grimy streets and subway cars of New York City. However, these days the universal spray can art of graffiti is found around the world, and Africa is no exception. Graffiti art ranges from underground artists who work on the street to the mainstream artists selling work in galleries for over $100,000.

Graffiti and street art can be a positive force giving political activists a visual voice and making cultural statements throughout underserved communities.
