Banksy in Imperial Beach? World Famous Graffiti Artist Sighting

The graffiti artist known as Banksy, whose film is up for an Oscar Sunday, is rumored to be in San Diego.

Banksy, the world famous fabled graffiti artist, is rumored to be in San Diego and Imperial Beach.

Check out this picture of his iconic rat doing surveillance next to a video surveillance camera sign near 9th and Emory Streets.

The one-name artist who famously guards his identity was director of Exit Through the Gift Shop, which is up for best documentary at the Oscars Sunday.

His stencil based work has been found from the penguin enclosure at the London Zoo to the levee wall in New Orleans to the barrier wall between Israel and Palestine.

Yahoo! News reported earlier this week that Banksy has been banned from attending the Oscars in disguise.

which website of his? Bummed Exit Through The Gift Shop didn't get best Doc at the Oscars.

"which website of his?" Ummm.... his official site? http://www.banksy.co.uk/, which neither of these pieces are on. For someone who is so sure these pieces are his, it's kind strange you don't know about his site. Why don't you just admit you made the whole thing up?
