Celebrating the diverse UK art scene & Banksy!

British street artist Banksy is celebrated in a new video which explores why England’s creative sector is the envy of the world. Developed by Arts Council England, the national development agency for the arts, the video celebrates how art and culture has helped to shape communities, broadened horizons and enrich people’s lives.


The UK’s creative sector is a rare and real British success story which contributes more than £71bn a year to the UK economy – a figure that has grown by almost 10 per cent since 2011, more than any other sector – and which employs over 1.71 million people.

Born to proud but uneducated parents who named him Mister after the many famous Mr's in the world. Mister flourished until one day at school a cruel child noticed that his expression never changed and he wasn't blessed with pupils like everyone else. Forever ridiculed for his blank face, Mister ran away from home to a poor life on the streets where he learnt the ancient art of defacing public buildings.
