Wall and piece

The collected works of Britain's most wanted artist.
Artistic genius, political activist, painter and decorator, mythic legend or notorious graffiti artist? The work of Banksy is unmistakable, except maybe when it's squatting in the Tate or New York's Metropolitan Museum. Banksy is responsible for decorating the streets, walls, bridges and zoos of towns and cities throughout the world.
Witty and subversive, his stencils show monkeys with weapons of mass destruction, policeman with smiley faces, rats with drills and umbrellas. His statements, incitements, ironies and epigrams are by turns intelligent and cheeky comments on everything from the monarchy and capitalism to the war in Iraq and farm animals.

I bought this book for my boyfriend who is a big Banksy fan. I enjoyed flipping through the book and seeing some of the pieces I have and haven't seen before. Definitely recommend it if you're a Banksy fan or want an interesting coffee table book. Read full review
