After a frenetical activity during the previous years, Banksy is slowing down in 2014. There are six works documented, all of them in the UK, and only one in London (!!). One can assume that The Banksy team was preparing for 2015.
Besides the stencils for the London Olympics there are only a handful street art pieces in 2012, and all of the in the UK. Inscriptions are coming back.
After spending some months in the US in the first half of 2011, Banksy is back in UK for the summer. One piece in Liverpool, and maybe two in Bristol, the rest of them in London.

After Banksy’s tour of the US following the premier and promotion of “Exit through the Gift shop”, he is back in the UK for the summer and fall of 2010. Goes to Glastonbury where he stencils the crazy hippies and where he also films a prank with Prince Charles.

In 2009 there are some interesting street art pieces in the UK and only one abroad, the “Zebra” in Mali.

One can see several changes in Banksy’s street art from 2006 and onwards. The pieces are fewer but much more elaborated. Banksy goes to Bristol in October to paint a police sniper and a boy with a paper bag waiting to burst it in his ears.
Banksy goes to the Glastonbury festival where he erects “Boghenge”, a version of Stonehenge. He also stencils “cop frisking a little girl”.
In June 2006 Banksy goes back to Bristol to paint the iconic “Well Hung Man” on Frogmore Street. Other notable work includes the vandalised telephone booth and the “18 minutes”, the maid sweeping the dust under the carpet.

The street art activity during 2004 is mainly focused on London. Two pieces in Brighton, and two in Somerset. There are only two pieces outside the UK in 2004, one piece documented in Berlin and another one in Chicago. One of Banksy’s most iconic pieces goes up in Southbank, “The girl with the red balloon”.

Banksy’s focus is still in London with a few a pieces appearing in Bristol and in Brighton. The iconic piece Pulp Fiction goes up in 2002 on Old Street in Shoreditch, one of Banksy’s preferred areas in London. The Royal Guards in different areas in London are from the same period.
