Aardman Animations created this cute little animation for the Encounters Festival in Bristol. The film plays on the mystery that surrounds the identity of one of the city's most famous sons: Banksy...

The film was created by Aardman director and animator Chopsy, and was commissioned by the Encounters Festival for the Grafitti Animation section, appropriately enough.



Very nice, but it would've impacted more had the punchline not been in the title of the video.

Loved it. Aardman and a certain al fresco artist should team and do a film me thinks.

Would have been even funnier if he turned out to be Gromit!

Being an urban bear Paddington thought he'd try his hand at street art . . .

'The film was created by...Chopsy...' and watched by Twatsy, Arsey, and Shitesy.

Cute film, but also a little disappointed by the gag be given away in the title.

So you think if we found Banksy, handed him a ton of cash, he might make us an advert for one of our many clients. His images are so iconic, we'd pay him handsomely! Will someone give us his address?
