not yet rated|write a review
The collected works of Britain’s most wanted artist.

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 cities throughout the world.
Witty and subversive, his stencils show monkeys with weapons of mass destruction, policeman with smiley faces, rats with drills and umbrellas. 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.

Customer Reviews of Wall and Piece

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! As a newcomer to this artist, I was amazed by the level of intelligence that went into the work. Banksy doesn't merely create "street" art, he fuses seriously socialist thoughts with urbanity. He transforms the mundane into less than mundance. And he's funny about it, too. Check out The Elephant in the Room on the site for more fun. Oh, and he's really technically talented.

Editorial Reviews

“People look at an oil painting and admire the use of brushstrokes to convey meaning. People look at a graffiti painting and admire the use of a drainpipe to gain access.”
–Banksy

“Since spotting my first few Banksies I have been desperately seeking out more. They make me smile and feel optimistic about the possibilities of shared dreams and common ownership.”
–Simon Hattenstone, Guardian
