Modesty - Oftentimes his artwork will say things like, “Remember Where You Came From.” It appears he is expressing his belief that people like himself of great wealth should be modest. This theme is also seen in Banksy’s Robot Artwork, as he alludes to the potential of AI to dominate humanity.

Why Is Banksy's Art Important?
