Description

The other three A6 size pocket books (all published pre 2005) are out of print and only available on the second hand market (the good news is that most of their content appears in Wall and Piece).

These include the Barton Hill Flower Girl image painted just yards from the youth centre where youth worker John Nation inspired Bristol’s original graffiti artists in the mid-1980s and which made a major impact on the young Banksy. Did you ever wonder what happens to the inhabitants of a building after the artist known as Banksy leaves one of his artworks on their wall? I think given the title ‘Seven Years With Banksy’, I would not expect there to be a great deal of new information in the newer version.

All over the world, he is currently the visual artist who gets the most attention in the press and is on everybody’s lips. Banksy is an England-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director of unverified identity. As above, 250 signed and numbered copies with a thumb print on the front cover + additional blemishes, signed and numbered on the back with the STOT21stCplanB Thunderbolt Man, with signed, labeled and stamped screen print on 1250 micron grey pulp card laid inside.

The groundbreaking ‘Dismaland’ show, his Paris ’68 revisited works, The Walled Off Hotel, Brexit, Cans Festival, Brookyln and Basquiat, as well as new works from Gaza and New York. Where its predecessor featured in-depth analysis of each piece displayed, Desperately Seeking B**ksy offers accessibility and brevity for the more casual fan. This copy is from the fourteenth printing and sports a characteristic endorsed sticker indicating that this edition contains 10% more contents. These books are a successful attempt to mimic the style of Banksy’s trio of pocket sized books from 2001 to 2004. His works are often about politics, war, and other important things, but he also likes to paint rats.In addition to a massive number of photographs of his creations there are some interesting background notes and comments from Banksy himself, giving some works a whole new meaning. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. Wall and Piece comprises a three-part series of previously published books by Banksy, including Banging Your Head Against a Brick Wall, Existencilism, and Cut It Out.

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. Decades before he blew the lid off the high-stakes art world by shredding a work immediately following its purchase at an auction, Banksy was committing acts of artistic protest on the streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world. Note that Banksy isn't necessarily "authorized," though, in that it isn't actually published with Banksy or Pest Control but, given the level of access Rizzoli's team was granted by the artist, it comes pretty darn close. As Banksy continues to challenge the political, economic, and racial oppression that takes place every day in cities around the world, this book offers a timely appreciation of just how the artist has embedded himself into the psyche of the powerful as well as the voiceless without ever revealing his own identity. He also collaborates with institutions such as Luiss Guido Carli, La Sapienza, Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome (MACRO), and PAC in Milan.His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti executed in a distinctive stenciling technique. The work of Banksy is unmistakable, except maybe when it's squatting in the Tate or New York's Metropolitan Museum. Printed on 120 gsm Munken Lynx Rough paper, bound in paper covered pictorial 3mm book board cut flush to the edges, in a matt white dust jacket with subtle blemishes printed on.
