'Tracing the arc of Banksy’s career, the graphic novel shines new light on what exactly makes Banksy such an interesting and enduring cultural icon' - Artnet

A graphic biography on the street artist, Banksy 

Told in classic comic-book form, this graphic biography invites a new audience to learn about Banksy-and uses a pitch-perfect medium to convey the artist's message that art is for the people. Banksy is arguably the most well-known street artist of all time. But we don't actually know who he is.

This is just one of many contradictions that are addressed in this enormously compelling graphic biography. When two young Londoners are caught spray-painting graffiti on a city wall, they get to know each other while detained by the police. After they are released, they decide to make a film of Banksy's life, tracing the arc of his career as they travel through the streets of London.

Readers will learn not only of Banksy's politically charged art and the causes he championed, but also of its worldwide dissemination, museum exhibitions, and record-breaking auctions. While readers may not learn Banksy's true identity, this uniquely graphic form of storytelling communicates the artist's belief that art is for everyone, speaks to everyone, and is owned by everyone.
