Banksy Myths & Legends Vol 2

ISBN: 9781908211316

Author: Marc Leverton    Publisher: Carpet Bombing Culture

No single living artist has created as many myths, rumors and legends as Banksy. In 2011, Bristol based writer Marc Leverton teamed up with Carpet Bombing Culture to bring a collection of the best of these stories together. Since then the Banksy juggernaut has continued to roll on spewing out sharp satire, unintentional furores, blatant profiteering, and many more myths and legends. Plus the odd bit of art. For many, the smoke and mirrors that surround Banksy are as fascinating as the artwork of the 21st century s most important living artist. The first edition contained 58 Banksy stories, many of which have been subsequently verified as being bona fide. Others have remained slightly more tenuous. The second edition takes the same approach. We collect the stories, the reader can judge for themselves. Marc Leverton is a freelance writer based in Bristol, England. Bristol is Banksy s reputed hometown where he still continues to set tongues wagging, as the recent shenanigans over Mobile Lovers proved. The writer collects the stories from contacts and friends in the city and Banksy fans worldwide. The small black book format is an homage to Banksy s own first books, which are now out of print. Both Volume One and Volume Two reproduce high quality images of Banksy s street work and other items of interest to Banksy fans.
