He has smuggled fake artwork into Tate Britain, and sprayed a vision of paradise on the Palestinian side of Israel's "security wall".
Now, the "guerrilla graffiti" artist Banksy has taken aim at the cult of empty celebrity and its current poster child, Paris Hilton.
The secretive artist has smuggled 500 doctored copies of Paris Hilton's debut album into music stores throughout the UK, where they have sold without the shops' knowledge.
In place of Ms Hilton's bubble-gum pop songs, the CDs feature Banksy's own rudimentary compositions. On the cover of the doctored CD, Ms Hilton's dress has been digitally repositioned to reveal her bare breasts; on an inside photo, her head has been replaced with that of her dog.
I have nothing against Ms. Hilton. I'm long past the adolescent stage that is consumed by fashion and the need to express one's opinion about how awful other people are, especially pop culture icons. I'm simply appreciative of the immense effort it took for this guy to infiltrate these stores with counterfeit copies of a CD!
One of my readers has posted what are purported to be pictures of the CD cover and booklet contents. A trifle racy, FYI. Now if we could find the audio recordings substituted for Ms. Hilton's, um, efforts.
