Review by Julia on 28th July, 2011
 
5 stars "Beware - your friends will "borrow" this book.."

I knew of Banksy from design-world magazines and ad rags and of course the doco-movie Exit Through the Giftshop (Banksy's work and his hooded appearances were its only saving grace in my opinion).

I found this well-thumbed, dog-eared book in a tiny gem of a coffee shop in Dunedin and knew after two minutes of leafing through it that I needed it. Biting social commentary expressed in grafitti; witty, truthful – a gift to the passers-by lucky enough to see it on their daily travels in London, but even Soho New York, and other exotic parts of war-torn Europe etc. While most of us ought to admit that we often go about our daily lives in a murky dream-state, Banksy seems to be alert to everything we are missing or taking for granted. However, sometimes he's just plain mischievous but at least his art is enjoyable and thought-provoking. I found myself chuckling or feeling pangs of poignancy about issues I don't think enough about. I don't know how to summarise him without appearing like a right prat. He doesn't really preach – I think in conclusion – he reminds. Well that's enough about that – if all you need on occasion is one damn fine visual pun – get it. Because its not a hardback – it's a nice price.

5 stars "I like it"

Some may not think this is art but I think it is good stuff and crosses boundaries with humour.

"Great service, great prices prompt delivery and wide variety"

Thank you for your prompt delivery, especially with your oh so competitive prices. I'm very happy with the service and will definitely be using Mighty Ape again. A merry Christmas to all at Mightly Ape.

4 stars "Beautiful and thought provoking"

Banksy is a brilliant street artist and this book shows just a small collection of the wonderful art he has made. The book lives on my coffee table and has been an endless conversation starter and source of laughs

Description

Artistic genius, political activist, painter and decorator, mythic legend or notorious graffiti artist? The work of Banksy 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 cites throughout the world. Witty and subversive, his stencils show monkeys with weapons of mass destruction, policeman with smiley faces, rats with drills and umbrellas. If you look hard enough, you'll find your own. His statements, incitements, ironies and epigrams are by turns intelligent and cheeky comments on everything from the monarchy and capitalism to the war in Iraq and farm animals. His identity remains unknown, but his work is prolific. Here's the best of his work in a fully illustrated colour volume - including brand material.

Author Biography

Banksy, real name unknown, was born in Bristol.
