Now, fully revised and updated, the third edition of Banksy's Bristol includes never-before-published pictures of Banksy at work. The images were taken when Banksy joined Bristol's radical football team The Easton Cowboys on a tour of Mexico to play football against the Zapatista freedom fighters. The new edition also contains sections on the Banksy vs Bristol Museum show, Exit Through The Gift Shop, The Tesco Value Petrol Bomb and interview with John Nation and more. The book is a celebration of Banksy's street art in his home city of Bristol and places him in the context of 3D, John Nation from the Barton Hill Youth Club, Inkie, Nick Walker and the other artists and musicians who were instrumental in linking Bristol to the original New York hip hop scene. It is the most revealing account of Banksy's formative years and contains more than one hundred images of his Bristol art, as well as pictures of Banksy at work, many of which have never been published before. Steve Wright, traces Banksy's roots back to the rave culture of the Nineties and draws a rounded picture of an artist who is most famous for being anonymous.

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
