Multcolib Research Picks: Banksy: Street Art
Annotation:Secrecy feeds the flame of this thought-provoking, irony-steeped, unauthorized investigation into how a regular guy from Bristol elevated graffiti to a fine art only to find himself trapped in the paradox of becoming a commercially successful, anticapitalist guerrilla artist. - from the review in Booklist 2010
Annotation:"As Banksy describes it, It’s basically the story of how one man set out to film the un-filmable. And failed." This documentary film won many awards for best documentary when it was first distributed in 2010. Link: http://www.banksyfilm.com
Annotation:From the book description: "The locations are from around the world (predominantly the UK, US and Europe), and many images have never been seen before. "
Annotation:Written in 2009, this book of commentary about Banksy's art explores his identity as an anonymous artist, with history and evolution of using stencils to create images.
