Staff Reviews


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

Description


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.

Banksy, real name unknown, was born in Bristol.

Praise For…


“People look at an oil painting and admire the use of brushstrokes to convey meaning. People look at a graffiti painting and admire the use of a drainpipe to gain access.”
–Banksy

“Since spotting my first few Banksies I have been desperately seeking out more. They make me smile and feel optimistic about the possibilities of shared dreams and common ownership.”
–Simon Hattenstone, Guardian
