Banksy - Wall and PieceRegular price $49.00
Banksy - Wall and Piece. Artistic genius, political activist, painter and decorator, mythic legend or notorious graffiti artist? The work of Banksy (Cut It Out, Existentialism) is unmistakable, except maybe when it's squatting in the Tate or New York's Metropolitan Museum.
Banksy is responsible for decorating the streets, walls, bridges, and zoos of towns and cities throughout the world. Witty and subversive, his stencils show monkeys with weapons of mass destruction, policemen with smiley faces, rats with drills, and umbrellas.
His statements, incitements, ironies, and epigrams are by turns intelligent and cheeky, commenting on everything from the monarchy and capitalism to the war in Iraq and farm animals. His identity remains unknown, but his work is prolific. The best of his work -- old and new -- are collected here in a big, fully illustrated colour volume. This softcover edition has 10% more crap!
