Product Description

Review

Much of Banksy's early work on the streets of Bristol has been lost, but this book records those works which appeared throughout the city. Author Steve Wright explores the streets of Banksy's Bristol and interviews many of the people who worked with Banksy in his early years. We believe this to be the most complete photographic collections of Banksy's Bristol work from the freehand wall paintings in Easton to the iconic Mild Mild West, his stencils and more. It contains more than 100 images. Five stars Marlon Rigel, Waterstone's.com For any fan of Banksy's work this beautifully produced book should become essential reading.A" britishhiphop.co.uk --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

27 of 28 people found the following review helpful By Solmander :D on 15 Jan. 2008
Format: Hardcover
half-expecting some sort of cheap rip-off I was surprised to find that this book's really great. Lots of full-colour pictures of Banksy's best Bristol works and a few real gems of never-seen-before stuff. The text is pretty intelligent too, but it's the pictures that make it a must-have. Nice hardback coffee-table production values too, and very well priced.

Format: Hardcover
This is the perfect book if you're interested in where Banksy came from, with brilliant coverage of the environment he grew up in, the whole Bristol scene, and the other artists working around him. Great illustrations, but the text is must-read too. Beautifully produced - I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Banksy, graffiti, or Bristol.

This is brilliant, a must for any Bristolian who may remember seeing the work around Bristol before all the hype. If you aren't from Bristol, this book will show you lots of Banksy work that can't be seen anywhere else. Quality.

Not as good as 'Banksy Wall and Piece'. Nevertheless this book is a clear description of Bristol around the time and how it became a catalyst for creating this urban legend.

Mildly interesting insight into the early work of Banksy 14 Oct. 2009
By Daniel Lobo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The book aims to offer first hand privileged accounts of Banky's early work in his hometown of Bristol. While there is some of that, it primarily relies on local memories, some speculation, and historic hindsight that plays on the current status of his work.

However there are some interesting glimpses and reflections, in particular those that display the complexities of disputed spaced, art conceptions, and in that context in particular the relationship with the local authorities around his work and street art.

In essence it is not a bad offering around his work and some urban culture elements. It is not that it aims too high, it really doesn't, but it sure brags too loudly. It falls too often in vapid claims of knowing Banksy and having the power to reveal his identity, to of course say immediately that it would never do such a thing. But in that regards it sure feels like there is an opportunistic side to the volume, trying to milk their connection with a now world renowned artist.
