DESCRIPTION

Scottish sculptor and photographer Andy Goldsworthy (born 1956) makes artworks from simple natural materials like leaves, stones, thorns, and branches, without any special tools. Works created in this way are often very fragile and quickly fall apart, evaporate, melt, or fade, so to make them last Goldsworthy takes a picture of each one the moment it is complete. He has worked in the US, Scotland, and even on the North Pole. 

British artist Banksy became known for his provocative graffiti touching on politics and social issues in the 2000s. Some critics even called him an art terrorist. The real identity of the pseudonymous artist, who avoids any publicity, remain unknown. In spite of his open criticism of capitalism, his works are not only popular, but also commercially acclaimed. In April 2010 Time magazine put him on its list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
