12.) San Francisco

Banksy is the gold standard when it comes to urban street art. His legendary reputation has only grown since the 2010 release of his intriguing movie, "Exit Through the Gift Shop" (which is streaming now).

To promote the film, Banksy went into super-overdrive and attacked city walls across North America like there was no tomorrow. The result is an incredible collection of thought-provoking, clever work that only the brilliant Banksy could come up with. Here are Banksy's top 12 masterpieces of 2010.

11.) Los Angeles

10.) Toronto

9.) San Francisco

8.) Boston

7.) Alcatraz

6.) Dumbo, New York

5.) San Francisco

4.) San Francisco

3.) Detroit

2.) Toronto

1.) Ground Zero

  • Great compilation!!!
  • I got to see the Peace and Heart one in San Fran China town. It's pretty cool because I just spotted it not knowing it was there.
  • FTW! :)
  • I was at the Banksy show in downtown Los Angeles back in September '06. It was unbelievable. I stared at the Paris Hilton CD installation for what seemed like an hour. I was totally transfixed. There's something about his work that I find wildly captivating. I think I prefer his sculptural stuff the most though. It doesn't get as much play as his street art, but the Italian marble-like statues adorned in modern warfare gear was pretty ace.
  • You're welcome! Yeah, at the time I had no idea what it was I was seeing. Marvelous!
  • @ LTG - And thanks for the back-story on the Detroit piece. Wonder if it's just a coincidence...
