Banksy the Bristol born artist with a political conscience has recently been making waves Stateside. Banksy managed to smuggle a figure dressed as a Guantanamo Bay detainee into Disneyland and placed it in the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ride at the California theme park in early September (more here).

Since then Banksy has faced criticism for placing a painted elephant in a living room for an art exhibition on global poverty and injustice.

Whether you agree with Banksy's point of views or not, there is no questioning the talent that this artist has for creating provocative artwork that inspires thought, reflection and discussion.

I recommend that you check out his web site here.
