No single living artist has created as many myths, rumors and legends as Banksy. In his home town of Bristol almost everyone seems to have a Banksy story. Many of the tales ináthis book are from Bristol and some are from further afield. What they share is that they are all told with the wide-eyed wonder which Banksy inspires. Compiled between 2009 andá2011, some of these stories are quite old and have been told so many times they have become the stuff of legend, while others are more questionable and best described as myths.áSome are laugh out loud bollocks and some are simply gossip. You be the judge. These stories illustrate the incredible audacity, originality and sheer bloody mindedness of Banksy,áwho obviously will be best remembered for his art and exposing the hypocrisy and idiocy of our modern lives. The myths will be viewed as a distraction to some or part of the appealáfor others. One thing is certain, the art and the myths are both larger than life and stick two fingers up at conformity. This book is a celebration of that anarchic, rebellious spirit.
