Considered the father of stencil graffiti, Blek le Rat (aka Xavier Prou) is one of France's first and most important graffiti artists. An essential influence on much of the Street Art world, Banksy himself was quoted as stating "every time I think I've painted something slightly original, I find out that Blek le Rat has done it as well, only twenty years earlier."
