BANKSY - Bristol Street Art Book
Home Sweet Home is a celebration of Banksy’s street art in his home city of Bristol. This book places him in the context of 3D, John Nation from the Barton Hill Settlement, Inkie, Nick Walker and the other street artists and musicians who were instrumental in linking Bristol to the original New York hip hop scene.
It is the most revealing account of Banksy’s formative years and contains more than one hundred images of his Bristol Street Art, as well as pictures of Banksy at work, many of which have never been published before.
Steve Wright, Venue magazine’s Art Editor, traces Banksy’s roots back to the rave culture of the Nineties and draws a rounded picture of an artist who is most famous for being anonymous.
Banksy’s Bristol is available from Tangent Books from December 1st 2007.
