Banksy's Identity Revealed

Graf prankster Banksy has recently been outed as "former public schoolboy" Robin Gunningham. The identity of the 34-year-old incognito artist was uncovered by the UK's Mail on Sunday, which spoke with Banksy/Gunningham's old classmates. While some believe the artist's middle-class origins will grate on fans who adore his anti-establishment stance, others have asked, "Who cares?" — while still others have chosen to make light of the whole semi-scandal.
