Banksy: Have you ever spotted his art?

It looks as if notorious street artist Banksy has left his mark in Canada.

New graffiti images that appeared in Toronto over the weekend have been linked to the controversial U.K. street artist. Banksy was in Toronto for the opening of his film Exit Through the Gift Shop, a documentary in which he appears in disguise.

The reclusive British artist does not want to reveal his identity, because his art is created under cover of night in public spaces.

The Show & Tell Gallery in Toronto reported three images in Banksy's distinctive style that showed up over the weekend.

Among them are one of his famous rats, a man in a suit, and a man in uniform walking a balloon dog.


CBC community member Epoch333 sent in these two suspected works by British graffiti artist Banksy, found along the Humber River bike path and under the Dundas St. W. bridge in Toronto.

CBC News Facebook member Los Chris Hearn sent in this photo, believed to show Banksy's work. It was taken in 2001, near London's Barbican Centre.
