The Mail on Sunday newspaper believes they have uncovered the identity of the underground British graffiti artist Banksy. The Mail On Sunday say that Banksy is the 34 year former public schoolboy (private school) Robin Gunningham.

“The notion that Banksy is Robin Gunningham, 34, who was educated at the £9,240-a-year Bristol Cathedral School, will shock the artist’s fans, fond of their hero’s ‘anti-establishment’ stance.” Mail on Sunday

Banksy’s publicist would neither confirm nor deny if Banksy was Robin Gunningham, so the mystery continues. It was thought that Banksy’s real name might be Robin Banks of Bristol, with parents that believed he was a painter and decorator.
