Bansky
Rebel Artist
..................................................................................................................

   In 2005, disguised as a retired Brit, the world renowned street artist Bansky snuck into four New York Museums and, istead of stealing artworks, added to the heavily guarded museums collections. Each painting was accompanied by a name plaque. Bansky claims to have studied Houdini like escape techniques that facilitated his amazing covert mission.

"The Met"

   Bansky was quoted as saying: "This historic occasion has less to do with finally being embraced by the fine art establishment and is more about the judicious use of a fake beard and some high strength glue. They're good enough to be in there, so I don't see why I should wait."
