    The elusive graffiti artist, political activist, film director, painter and long time fugitive that for years has gone by the pseudonymous name ofBanksy, was arrested early this morning by London’s Metropolitan Police. After hours of questioning and a raid of his London art studio, his true name and identity have finally been revealed.

    The City of London Police say Banksy’s real name is Paul Horner, a 35-year old male born in Liverpool, England. The BBC has confirmed this information with Banky’s PR agent Jo Brooks along with Pest Control, a website that acts as a handling service on behalf of the artist.

    Graffiti is about as "artistic" as a guy banging on empty plastic buckets in the subway is "musical."

    It's just visual noise. I have never seen a bit of graffiti that had anything particularly groundbreaking artistically. It's just doodling on concrete. Nothing more.

    Banksy is the Warhol of our day. Famous for being famous. Famous for being mysterious. A cheap parlor trickster. His "statements" have all the gravitas of a fourth grader.

    Graffiti as an art form has been around for more than three decades and has never changed. Amateur crap in '84,' amateur crap today.

    If he's 35 now, then he started doing excellent original and thought provoking art at a really young age.
