The Sun Interviews Banksy


UK tabloid newspaper The Sun has published an interview with the secretive street artist Banksy, including the first ever photo of him in his studio.

“I started painting graffiti in the classic New York style of big letters and characters but I was never very good at it. I always used to get things too close together or too far apart and it used to take me ages. So I had to come up with a way of making it quicker, otherwise I was gonna get nicked.”
