Where’s 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.
