Not just graffiti,
This review is from: Banging Your Head Against a Brick Wall (Paperback)
Travel through any urban environment and you will see much graffiti. Most of it can be seen as mindless and an act of vandalism, but that is missing the point. Some artists strive to elevate the form or at least make the viewer think. Bansky is one such person. His graffiti can be found around the East End and is both playful and astute in it's targets. The book is pocket sized and should be seen as documentary proof images that probably no longer exists. The temporary nature of the form means that these striking pieces will usually be removed fairly quickly, whilst our minds are allowed to be polluted by advertising hoardings that are far more damaging. If spray can art is of interest to you, get this booklet. If not, you may be lucky enough to walk past one of his works in the future. Give it a second glance.
