about

For someone who shuns the limelight so completely that he conceals his name, never shows his face and gives interviews only by email, Banksy is remarkably famous. From his beginnings as a Bristol graffiti artist, his artwork is now sold at auction for seven-figure sums and hangs on celebrities'' walls. The appearance of a new Banksy is national news, his documentaryExit Through the Gift Shopwas Oscar-nominated and people queue for hours to see his latest exhibition. Now more National Treasure than edgy outsider, who is Banksy and how did he become what he is today?

In this fully updated and illustrated story of Banksy''s life and career, Will Ellsworth-Jones pieces together a picture of his world and unpicks its contradictions. Whether art or vandalism, anti-establishment or sell-out, Banksy and his work have become a cultural phenomenon and the question ‘Who is Banksy?'' is as much about his career as it is ‘the man behind the wall''.
WILL ELLSWORTH-JONESwas chief reporter and then New York correspondent for the Sunday Times as well as holding senior editorial positions at theTelegraph Magazine,The IndependentMagazineandSaga Magazine. His other books include a history of conscientious objectors in the First World War,We Will Not Fight. He lives in London.
