Bansky is probably one of the most famous culture jammers ever. He is known throughout the world for his dark humored graffiti mostly found in England. He was named one of the most influential people by Times. His work started out as a collaboration between musicians and artists. As his  work became more and more recognized it also became very controversial because people began to question if his work was actually art or was it vandalism. Also the subjects that he focused on was primarily to do with the government and the Queen.

He stated that his own art work was a type of guerilla warfare. The goal of his work was to take away power from the larger enemy and give that power back to the “little people.” In order to do this his work mocked central power. Most people either hate Banksy or think he is a genius but either way his graffiti influenced many culture jammers and paved a controversial path for guerilla warfare artists.
