Banksy: Art Breaks the Rules

Hettie Bingham
Authors:
Hettie Bingham

Who is Banksy? One of the most famous street artists in the world, he has kept his identity a secret ever since his work was first noticed in the 1990s. He is known for his subversive, often political, stencil art and dark sense of humour. Today, he is known around the globe, not only for his art, but also for his exhibitions, film work and books. Discover all there is to know about the man behind the pseudonym in this pocket-sized guide to Banksy: his childhood, what inspires him and how he went from local graffiti artist to global fame. See some of his most iconic imagery, and find out how his art provides clues to his personality and political views. Learn all about Dismaland, Banksy's pop-up 'bemusement park' that drew the world's attention to Weston-Super-Mare in 2015, and discover how his art is often a response to global issues such as the refugee crisis, or conflict in the Middle East. Many of Banksy's original artworks no longer exist in the places they were created, but here you can see some of his most famous pieces, including Sweep it Under the Carpet; The Mild Mild West and Mobile Lovers. A 'spotters guide' at the back of the book also provides information about where you can spot a real-life Banksy in the wild. Comprehensive, engaging and crammed full of fascinating information, this is the ideal read for Banksy fans of all ages!
