Like a 21st Century Duchamp, Banksy is the ultimate art prankster. From illegally hanging one of his own paintings in London's Tate Britain, to manipulating copies of Paris Hilton's pop music CD to include songs with titles like Why Am I Famous?, Banksy has continually created irreverent, brilliantly snide, and culturally significant images both in galleries and museums, as well as in public spaces.
