Home Sweet Home is the most revealing account of Banksy's formative years and contains more than one hundred images of his Bristol art, as well as pictures of Banksy at work, many of which have never been published before. Steve Wright, Venue magazine's Art Editor, traces Banksy's roots back to the rave culture of the Nineties and draws a rounded picture of an artist who is most famous for being anonymous.
Banksy's Bristol, Home Sweet Home is the only Banksy book to explore Banksy's formative years in his home town. It contains pictures of his Bristol work which have never been published elsewhere and now the book has been completely updated with extra pages and we've added even more pictures.
Including an interview with John Nation, the man who founded the Bristol graffiti scene in the 1980s from an unlikely base at Barton Hill Youth Club. In the book Children of the Can, Banksy says: "John Nation, that shouty, red-faced, little social worker who made it all happen, has had more impact on the shape of British culture over the last 20 years than anyone else to come from the city." Other new sections include words and pictures about the Banksy vs Bristol Museum show, the Bristol Anarchist Bookfair and Tesco Value Petrol Bomb incident, Exit Through The Gift Shop and never-before-published pictures of Banksy at work when he went on tour with the Easton Cowboys football team to the Chiapas region of Mexico to support the Zapatista freedom fighters.
