We took a picture of Banksy in age disguise photographing graffiti in a quiet East End street in August 2014. facial features same as the one in Daily Mail in 2009 near his show in Australia. He had dyed his hair white and was wearing blotchy face make up to appear as grey stubble. Its all over out Twitter and website.. but the press dont want to know. He sells more papers remaining anon. So not much point to this Gather becase we really did find him, take two pictures of him but no one wants to know! search BANKSY UNMASKED londondada.wordpress.com

Drum and bass legend Goldie was being interviewed for a podcast when he referred to the elusive artist as “Robert”. It is thought to be confirmation that Banksy is his friend Robert Del Naja, a member of Massive Attack.

Del Naja denied it but people say Goldie's gaffe appears to confirm his identity. It would be so easy to connect everything now.

There are so much speculations but until Banksy comes out and confirms it, then that's the time everything will be clear. It's so easy to come up with theories but it'll only cause more questions as to who he is.

What matters is that he's a good graffiti artist. His anonymity is making him more popular because people like to keep guessing.

In 2016, journalist Craig Williams carried out a five-month investigation into Banksy and concluded that Del Naja was behind the movement. He claimed Banksy is not just one person but a team of street artists and that Del Naja is the ringleader.

There are so many people saying it's Robert del Naja because of Goldie's slip up. He can always say it's a different guy.

I like that Banksy is a mystery. It only peaks people's interest in him more.

Banksy is most probably who Goldie says he is. He or a group of people could be under the alias but 'Robert' could be the ringleader.

I'm not too concerned about who he is. I just want to appreciate what he does. We'll never know who he is right now anyway.

Banksy is an artist or a group of artists that want to stay anonymous. Can't people respect that? Would anything change if he comes out in the open?

He's a graffiti artist is all I know about him. I tried googling him and his identity but it's just speculations.

I won't believe what people say on who Banksy is until he comes out himself. It's his art that should be the center of attention and not who he is.

He could be a member of Massive Attack because his art appeared after their concerts. I don't think it's coincidental.
