I stand in awe of this guy's creative scope. A wealth of amazing stencils, guerrilla installations, and pure old fashioned vandalism. His art is inventive, refreshing, and consistently funny as hell. — Northshire Staff
World renowned street artist, rabble rouser and satirist, Banksy (true name unknown) shares personal stories about creating the most forbidden form of art - graffiti. Cool to look at and makes you think! My go-to gift for hard-to-buy-for teen relatives. — Leah Moore
Banksy, Britain's now-legendary "guerilla" street artist, has painted the walls, streets, and bridges of towns and cities throughout the world. Not only did he smuggle his pieces into four of New York City's major art museums, he's also "hung" his work at London's Tate Gallery and adorned Israel's West Bank barrier with satirical images. Banksy's identity remains unknown, but his work is unmistakable—with prints selling for as much as $45,000.
