Wheres Banksy? fully captures the drama of this illustrious artist's exploits on the world stage with clever chronologically-arranged maps. The only survey that looks at Banksy's entire street art career, from his earliest works in 2002 through Dismaland and to the present, the book details his most significant works one piece at a time, with photos and in-depth analysis of the history of each work as well as its often-deeper meaning. A modern day Robin Hood, Banksy's public persona has grown to mythic proportions, making his actual identity irrelevant. And yet, he can be found in his art work that is recognizable and accessible stylized social commentary for the masses. This stunning new book is the ultimate introduction to the work of this brilliant artist and social pioneer.
Where and when did Banksy start and where can I see his art work? The Where's Banksy Book is not at all about who or what Banksy is, it furthermore wants to demonstrate the whole story from beginning to end. Starting in 2002 in Bristol the stencil artist worked or bombed his way through the world. Even his highly successful exhibition "Dismaland" is portrayed in this book.
All of course in chronological order you also get coordinates to his pieces and whether they're still there or if they have already been buffed. Is it graffiti, street art or something entirely different?
