Banksy crashes SXSW. Sorta.
Famed British street artist Banksy, whose real name and identity have not only been closely guarded secrets but have driven his lawyers bonkers trying to preserve some shred of his intellectual property rights in the face of his demand for anonymity, has turned up in Austin, Texas for this year’s South By Southwest arts and entertainment festival (commonly referred to by the acronym ‘SXSW’) . Well, his art has turned up at SXSW thanks to brothers John and Leo Resig who hope to create a permanent Banksy museum in Austin.
