Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A personal and in-depth account of the enigmatic man behind the murals, written by a friend and fan
 
An illuminating memoir of the world's most celebrated graffiti artist, this book offers insight into Banksy's life and work through the experiences that he and the author Robert Clarke shared together during Banksy's formative years. Clarke takes us through their first encounters, which took place in a hotel in New York in the 1990s, and candidly describes how his friendship with this young English artist developed. Along the way, readers will discover more about the ever-mysterious Banksy—what makes him tick, why he does what he does, and why he ultimately rejects fame in favor of anonymity, setting him apart from many other popular artists. Revealing much about the origins of some of the artist's most striking ideas, as well as his subversive social attitudes, complex personality, and singular sense of humor, this is the perfect read for any Banksy or modern-art fan.

About the Author
