Banksy’s Bristol: Home Sweet Home by Steve Wright, Banksy
Banksy’s Bristol: Home Sweet Home is a revealing account of Banksy’s formative years and contains more than 100 images of his art, as well as pictures of Banksy at work, many of which have never been published before.
This is a celebration of Banksy’s art in his home city of Bristol, England. It places Banksy in the context of 3D (Massive Attack), Inkie, Nick Walker and the other artists and musicians who were instrumental in linking Bristol to the original New York hip hop scene. Venue magazine’s art editor, Steve Wright, explores the streets of Banksy’s Bristol and interviews many of the people who worked with Banksy in his early years. He traces Banksy’s roots back to the rave culture of the ’90s and draws a rounded picture of an artist who is most famous for being anonymous.
Hardcover, lots of art (mostly color, some b&w).
Nice collective book
