One of the biggest mysteries we face today in the art world is find out who is behind Banksy. In other words, what are the name and surnames of this artist that these days even the rumor has fallen that it was Neil Buchanan from Art Attack.
And although the same Buchanan comes to the fore to deny such a rumor, for sure, and from what we have learned in recent years, Banksy himself would not come out to announce it. Perhaps we even remain with the mystery as it happened with those pseudonyms of centuries ago and that it was a way of “hiding”.
Neil Buchanan is alright known in the UK for presenting Art Attack. And the very idea that Buchanan himself comes out to deny it leads many to wonder that Banksy himself would never say in public that he is the same. It is easy to understand.
For everyone doubting the theory that Banksy is Art Attack’s Neil Buchanan, may I remind you Neil was already leading a double life in the 90s as Smarty Arty on Zzzap! pic.twitter.com/JwiISMhpB9

If we go to the talent of Buchanan from the 90s could be a perfect fit in that great use of the graphic message by Banksy and that would fit in later years; You have to realize that Banksy has been in recent years when he has become a popular character, but before many years have passed with his art on the streets.
They are many tweets related to Buchanan these days and his possible suspicion that he is behind Banksy. It will surely take us a long time to find out; especially when we have even seen him in the London Underground doing his thing a few months ago; or this other perspective of seeing what the toilets have been to the current pandemic we are experiencing.
Be that as it may, we are left with the mystery and that also gives a special air to everything related to Banksy.
