              The largest presentation of works by Banksy, the world's most enigmatic yet highly sought-after artist, including iconic works, installation objects, ephemera, and memorabilia all in one volume. Banksy is the world's most discussed artist of recent decades, and this seminal colle...ction features hundreds of works including Girl with Balloon, Pulp Fiction, Love Is in the Air, Barcode, and Monkey Queen. It also includes scores of paintings, serigraphs, stencils, and installation objects as well as a selection of memorabilia-many of which have never been published previously. Created with the cooperation of Pest Control, the group that manages all things Banksy, this is as official and authorized as any Banksy publication could be. Banksy is the world's greatest practitioner of street art. His work has always been political, involving pointed critiques of inequality, injustice, consumerism, and the establishment, yet no one knows his identity. He is an exemplary case of fame and notoriety built upon absence and anonymity. His relationship with the art market is also complex: marked by mocking hostility while being one of the most marketable and most collected contemporary artists.

              This catalogue is published to coincide with a major travelling exhibition containing 100 works by Banksy -- the world's most popular contemporary street artist -- which opens in a space on New York's Bowery in late May 2022 before travelling nationwide for a two-year period. Jus...t in time for a major new exhibition focusing upon the enigmatic British artist known as Banksy, this catalogue showcases the 100 original works and objects on display. Banksy, whose real identity remains unknown despite dominating the global street art scene for over twenty-five years, has a massive following, and this impressive six-month event is expected to draw over 100,000 visitors to an exhibition space on New York City's Lower East Side after which it will travel to four other US venues over a two year period. The collection of works is an insightful survey of Banksy's varied output over the past twenty years complete with iconic works such as Girl with Balloon, Love is in the Air (Flower Thrower), Bomb Love, Gangsta Rat, Monkey Queen, and others. Banksy is known for imagery that is simple but not elementary and is laced with caustic and critical messages that examine capitalism, war, social control, freedom, and the paradoxes of our time. After having been shown at Basel, Parma, and Lugano to critical acclaim, the North American tour will run for two years, opening in New York before traveling to Orlando, Washington D.C., Texas, and Denver.
