Banksy was born in England, UK; the date of his birth and registered name is unknown.

He is also recognized for being a documentary producer, known for his debut film “Exit Through The Gift Shop” (2010). His career has been active since the 1990s.
Have you ever wondered how rich Banksy is, as of mid-2016? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the total size of Banksy’s net worth is as high as $20 million, which has been accumulated not only through his successful career as a street artist, but also as a film producer. Another source is coming from sales of his books.
Banksy Net Worth $20 Million
Bansky`s career began in the 1990s, collaborating with the DryBreadZ Crew consisting of Tes and Kato, also graffiti artists. Soon he became one of the most important parts of Bristol`s Underground scene, alongside artists such as 3D, Inkie, and Nick Walker. By the 2000s, he had already made a name for himself, with the help of Steve Lazarides who worked as his photographer and agent.
His first large mural was the The Mild Mild West in 1997, covering the Stokes Croft in Bristol, and since then he has created numerous murals and graffiti, which were sold for enormous prices, which only increased his net worth and popularity. His first exhibition was held in 2002, at the 331⁄3 Gallery in Los Angeles, which is owned by Frank Sosa. The exhibition was rather successful, increasing Bansky`s net worth by a large degree.
During the 2000s, his name became very well known in the world of art, and some of his works were sold for more than $100,000, including “Bombing Middle England”, “Ballerina with Action Man Parts”, “Space Girl and Bird” – which reached $576,000 – “The Son Of A Migrant From Syria”, “Parachuting Rat”, “Glory”, and “Slave Labour”, which was sold for an eponymous $1.02 million, highly increasing his net worth. He is also the author of other works, such as “Balloon Girl”, “Leake Street”, among others, which were sold for a lot less money, but certainly increased his net worth.
In addition to his successful career as a graffiti artist, Banksy has published several books with the photos of his work, such as “Existencilism” (2002), “Pictures of Walls” (2005), and “You Are an Acceptable Level of Threat” (2012), etc. All of these books added a lot to the overall size of his net worth.
In addition to previous talents, his net worth also increased from his involvement in the film industry, as he is also known for his documentaries, including “Exit Through The Gift Shop” (2010), among others, for which he received an Oscar nomination in the category for Best Documentary, and he also received a nomination for a BAFTA Award in the category for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer for the same film. Furthermore, he received the Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary, also for the “Exit Through The Gift Shop”.
Although there have been many investigations into the identity of Banksy, his real name still remains unknown in the media. Some speculations state that Bansky might be a woman, however, they all point to Robin Gunningham, who was born in Bristol in 1973, and moved to London around 2000.
