    That story was proved to be false, however, and Banksy debuted new work "Girl with a Pierced Eardrum" in Bristol, England, as a response to the rumors.

    Here is a look back at some of the notorious artist's most compelling work over the last decade.

    So we can keep looking forward to murals like these continuing to pop up in a cities near us until the day they really catch this elusive artist.
