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."

Bansky is one of those artists that has become so popular that they've become synonymous with the word graffiti itself. This book is a collection of the work that made them so well known. it also includes some witty insight from the artist themselves. Read full review
