A street artist may be more popular than Queen Elizabeth II.

A poll involving 1,400 members of the British public shared their thoughts as to who represents the British society better among the Royal Family, the Church of England and street artist Banksy. It turned out that the latter, who was recognized as a national treasure was voted more popular than the monarch.

The survey that was revealed to Express showed that 53 percent of the respondent voted for Bansky, 42 percent opted for the Royal Family and only 5 percent favored the Church of England.

"Nobody had properly asked the British public how they felt about Banksy, so we thought it would be a good idea to try to understand why Banksy is so popular," Ian Syer of MyArtBroker.com commented on the research. "Not only does Banksy capture the hearts and minds of all generations, the art produced is also considered to be complex and emotive yet simple to digest and appreciate."

Banksy made an audacious move in the art history when he ripped The Girl With Ballon template just moments after it sold for more than a million at Sotheby's auction house in London. He later explained that he really intended to self-destruct the artwork once it's sold at the auction.

Banksy has not revealed his true identity yet. Fifty-two percent believes that Banksy is a collective of individuals using the same trademark tag on their work. Meanwhile, 20 percent believe that he is Robin Gunningham while 13 percent thinks that he is Robert Del Naja.
