When it comes to street artists none are as famous as the ever elusive Banksy. With his satirical, playful and obviously bold expressions of graffiti genius, it is no wonder this UK legend/ hero has made it big time.

His most well-known character and alter-ego, Miss Chief Eagle Testikle, has been spotted all over Canada, studying the European Male and taking very close notes.
