My Collector loved Bowie and wanted to a composition with him standing under a street light in England at night watching the ghost of Banksy painting him on an alley wall. Banksy of course is in ghost form since no-one really knows who he is. F I did a similar previous painting of Banksy painting Marilyn Monroe for another collector.

Banksy is an England-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director of unverified identity. 

Banksy displays his art on publicly visible surfaces such as walls and self-built physical prop pieces. Banksy does not sell photographs or reproductions of his street graffiti, but art auctioneers have been known to attempt to sell his street art on location and leave the problem of its removal in the hands of the winning bidder.

Banksy is a household name in England but his identity is a subject of febrile speculation. Elusive street artist Banksy has kept his identity a closely guarded secret. Banksy, a street artist whose identity remains unknown, is believed to have been born in Bristol, England, around 1974. He rose to prominence for his provocative stenciled pieces in the late 1990s. 

Banksy’s stencils feature striking and humorous images combined with slogans. The message is usually anti-war, anti- capitalist or anti - establishment. Subjects often include rats, aprs, policemen, soldier, children and the elderly.
