The World of Banksy

The World of Banksy
$ 35.00| £ 25.00 (* recommended retail price)

This vibrant three-volume set explores Banksy’s iconic works through the lens of some of his most powerful symbols—rats, monkeys, and children.

Whether he’s protesting war, challenging societal norms, or sending up political and economic systems with his scathing critiques, Banksy’s strategic and inventive use of symbolism is one of his most effective tools. Now renowned Banksy scholar Alessandra Mattanza helps readers understand and contextualize some of Banksy’s most recognized motifs. Packed with images that span his oeuvre since the early 2000s these volumes are filled with photographs and reproductions of some of his most well-known works featuring rats—Let Them Eat Crack, Rat Inside a Clock, monkeys—Laugh Now and Devolved Parliament; and children—Girl with Balloon and Girl Frisking Soldier. His work on urban resistance is also highlighted here, including such pieces as The Flower Thrower and The Son of a Migrant from Syria. In her introductory essays Mattanza delves into the unique resonance of Banksy’s work; his wit and perception; and his remarkable ability to create enduring messages on an ephemeral canvas.
