Banksy Inspires a Drug Addict to Give up Their Addiction and Create Their Own ArtIn 2009 Jamie Scanlon who is now a talented UK-based street artist named JPS had a drink and drug problem, but after visiting an exhibition on the work of Banksy he was inspired to face up to his problems and make a change for the better.

Rather than live for the buzz of the drugs he replaced that feeling with the excitement he got from illegally painting, however he says that it's the feedback and people liking his work that now gives him that same buzz. Make sure to check out more of his work via Facebook.
