WATCH: The world’s most elusive street artist Banksy captured on camera in Israel?

A woman claims to have captured on video the elusive artist, Banksy, as he worked at his new exhibition in Herzliya, Israel.

The world’s most elusive street artist Banksy has never revealed his real name or face. It has been postulated that the secrecy in which his name is shrouded stems from the illicit nature of graffiti.

But an Israeli woman claims to have captured what seemed to be the artist himself, as he worked at the exhibition.

The woman who asked not to be named told the press: ‘The mall opens at 10am but if you need to be there earlier you have to sign your name. ‘What was really weird was that when I came in and I had to sign my name, I noticed an English name and said to the security guard “who is that?”

‘He said it was an artist from England.’

The footage was snapped on a mobile phone, supposedly showing Banksy at work on an installation in a mall in Israel. The man wearing a bucket hat and military camouflage style trousers.

He was filmed working on a wall, then walking in the room carrying a stencil. When he spotted the camera his first respond was trying to hide and putting up a hand to cover his face.

The woman said: ‘The guy in the video is maybe around 40, the door was open and the smell of spray paint was really strong. He’s not Israeli for sure.

‘I’m not what you’d call a huge fan, but I was saying to myself ‘oh my god, it’s him. I think it’s Banksy.’
