Banksy's Bristol
The witty and subversive style of graffiti artist Banksy appeals equally to street art fans and the rich and famous. This book is a celebration of Banksy's street art in his home city of Bristol. Banksy's Bristol is the most revealing account of Banksy's formative years and contains more than one hundred images of his art, as well as pictures of Banksy at work, many of which have never been published before. This book places Banksy in the context of 3D (Massive Attack), Inkie, Nick Walker and the other artists and musicians who were instrumental in linking Bristol to the original New York hip hop scene. Steve Wright, Venue magazine's Art Editor, traces Banksy's roots back to the rave culture of the Nineties and draws a rounded picture of an artist who is most famous for being anonymous.
