More About the Author

Martin Bull is a photographer, writer, Bristol Rovers fan and street walker, and wants to share his graffiti / art knowledge with you, rather than keep it a secret.

He's been involved in publications on & off for many years, but 'Banksy Locations & Tours' (2006 - shellshock publishing - motto = "making it up as we go along") was his first properly published work (although a friend told him that was just vanity publishing anyway - lol), and it became a DIY favourite all over the world.

Martin has used his books and related projects to donate over £34,000 to several voluntary organisations, mainly The Big Issue Foundation (UK registered charity No. 1049077)

Don't expect pseudo-intellectual ramblings on what this graffiti all means, how the Banksy phenomenon has taken off, who he is, who he isn't, why my grandmother looks a bit like Arsene Wenger, or what the difference is between graffiti and street art. He's not that interested in intellectualising all this and would rather let you decide what it means to you.

Hand printed, limited editions of his black & white photos of graffiti are available via shellshockpublishing.co.uk

The book would have been great 5 years ago when the work was still there. The updated version is just an insert that tells you that the work has vanished and when it was last seen on the wall. I bought this book to find some off his work and in the end I found none because its all gone. So my advice is buy a real coffee table book of his work because this is no good at all.

Like I said 5 years or a bit less this book was great I'm sure.

His work is still in Bristol so get one made for there instead of milking this one till its dry.

This book provides an enlightening alternative itinerary to the usual 'Rubber-necking' sightseeing tours of London giving an interesting introduction to English 'street culture' and challenges one to differentiate between spray-vandalism and 'Street Art.'

I bought this book after reading some reviews, especially one that is tittled 'what a bloody amazing book'. I am asking - what is amazing about this book? Great, we have photos of Banksy's graffiti, ok, but not all of them, it doesn't include the most famous ones, there is many same graffitis or similar. You can say- yes, but author wanted to only include still existing graffitis. Unfortunately, most of them, according to this book, are gone. And it was printed in 2008, so I assume there is not many left. It doesnt include graffitis I saw in London myself and that are still there, and I know were made long time ago.
So, to sum up, if you bought this book to see Banksy's most famous graffitis - you will be dissapointed. If you bought it to go for a tour yourself to see his graffitis in London - you will be dissapointed, as most of them are gone, or are faded or are peeling. Plus, many similar graffitis, like rat ones or just tags (whats interesting about it?) or a line that goes through one street. Where are famous, beautiful, thoughtful graffitis???!
