Banksy

"When I first met this scruffy, grumpy guy back in 1997 I would have never guessed that 20 years on he would be the most famous artist of his generation, and that his work would be studied on school curriculums"

- Steve Lazarides

"I worked with him for 11 glorious years, during which time we broke every rule in the art rule book along with a fair few laws. He has since gone on to become a global superstar and has retained his ability to shock and make people chuckle"

- Steve Lazarides
