Renowned artist 'Banksy' has created street art masterpieces in cities all over the world. One of his most recent projects includes a hotel in Bethlehem featuring many of his creative works.

A woman claims to have caught the elusive artist on film while at a shopping center in Herzliya, an affluent city just outside of Tel Aviv.

Banksy has contributed several works of art around Israel, most notably at the security border between Israel and the West Bank.

So, could this be the real deal? Maybe the mystery of the ambiguous street artist's identity is finally solved.
