Description - Wall and Piece by Banksy
Artistic genius, political activist, painter and decorator, mythic legend or notorious graffiti artist? The work of Bansky is unmistakable, except maybe when it's squatting inthe Tate or New York's Metropolitan Museum. Bansky is responsible for decorating the streets, walls, bridges and zoos of towns and cites throughout the world. Witty and subversive, his stencils show monkeys with weapons of mass destruction, policeman with smiley faces, rats with drills and umbrellas.If you look hard enough you'll find your own. 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. His identity remains unknown, but his work is prolific. And now for the first time, he's putting together the best of his work -old and new in a fully illustrated colour volume.
