The Leader Of Massive Attack — Robert Del Naja

Creations of the mysterious Banksy began appearing on streets all over the world
in the late 1990s. Graffiti was often made on the most critical
the problems of the past time. The author’s identity was a strict secret, and
here his paintings became famous all over the world. It is curious that at the present time, the emergence of
drawing by Banksy on a building, which many initially perceived as an act of vandalism, increases its value many times over and
protected by law.

It seems that the British journalist Craig Williams finally managed to uncover the identity of the street “faceless” artist Banksy. In his opinion, the key to unlocking one of the biggest mysteries of the XXI century has become the leader of the group Massive Attack Robert “3D” Del Naja. It indicated the investigation, which for several years was occupied Williams.

Craig is sure that the mask Banksy all this time hiding it Del Naya. At this point it gave one a strange coincidence, which in the future was repeated many times. The fact is, in some mysterious way the movement of popular British band coincided with the emergence of new creations of world-renowned street artist. For example, one of the first overseas Banksy’s work is graffiti in Naples. It was in this city shortly before the appearance of the figure visited Del Naya, whose father was Italian. Love for Italy, as recognized by the leader of Massive Attack, was handed down to him from dad.

The Work Of Banksy

In 2006, six of Banksy’s work appeared in San Francisco, just
on the same date, when the group Del Naya gave concerts there under
tour. In 2008 on the streets of New Orleans appears eleven
works “faceless” artist, just at the period when the musician is busy
a soundtrack to the film about the disaster, the cause of which
was hurricane Katrina. The documentary is dedicated to the flooded
New Orleans. Williams found many more such as unexpected
matches. Besides, Del Naya, as it turned out, in his youth fond of
graffiti.

Curiously, Banksy has never concealed his special
relation to Massive Attack. Several times the artist admitted that
the British group had on his work a great influence. Moreover,
in 2006, he was mentioned by Nye in conversation with one of the journalists. “I —
originally from a small town in the South of England. When I was ten,
a guy named 3D (Del Naja approx. edition)
constantly drawing on the street. told Banksy in an interview. — I think he went to new York and brought
out graffiti. I grew up seeing graffiti on the streets of Bristol for a long time
before I saw graffiti in magazines or on the computer. 3D cast
to draw up a group Massive Attack: for him, it was probably
well, but for the city it was a loss.” Himself Del Naya also told me that personally knows Banksy.

In light of today’s
investigation Craig, that statement sounds more than funny.
However, journalists in the past tried to establish the identity of Banksy and has advanced the bold theory. It is not excluded that Williams could
to miss in their calculations. Because if not, then the answer is
personality most famous street artist was lying all this time
surface, and it is unlikely to appeal to people who have dedicated their lives
investigation phenomena “Banksy”.
