Street artist Banksy is to be made an honorary professor, a university has announced.

The University for the Creative Arts (UCA), which has campuses in Kent and Surrey, is recognising him for his "humanitarian efforts" and "the impact he has had on the global arts scene".

The award will take place at the Royal Festival Hall in London on 6 July.

UCA said Banksy will not be attending and the honour will be conferred on an empty chair.

Famed for his stencilling combining humour with graffiti, as well as his 2010 Academy award-nominated film Exit Through the Gift Shop, Banksy's identity has long remained a mystery.

Robert Del Naja- though I had never heard of him before Googling.

I think Banksy is Robin Gunningham, but I hedged my bets with "Rob". :D

I think most of us believe it is Mr Gunningham. I guessed you meant him.
