Banksy began his career as a graffiti artist in the early 1990s, in Bristol’s graffiti gang DryBreadZ Crew. Although his early work was largely freehand, Banksy used stencils on occasion. In the late ’90s, he began using stencils predominantly. His work became more widely recognized around Bristol and in London, as his signature style developed. Banksy has recently released a new video detailing the now infamous shredding of his "Girl With Balloon" painting which was auctioned off at Sothebys in October 2018. The clip first shows some behind-the-scenes footage of Banksy creating the self-shredding frame that holds the painting, and giving it a few test runs. Banksy also mentioned in the clip that the painting was supposed to shred all the way through instead of just half-way.
