Synopsis

Banksy by Hettie Bingham

Who is Banksy? One of the most famous street artists, he has managed to keep his identity a secret ever since his work first got noticed in the 1990s. He is known for his subversive stencil art that is often political and has a dark sense of humour. Today, he is world-famous, not only for his art, but also for his exhibitions, film work and books. Find out all there is to know about the man behind the pseudonym: what we know about Banksy's childhood, what inspires him and how he went from local graffiti artist to global fame. Have a go at the Banksy quiz and find out about his most famous artworks and stunts. Each title in the Real-life Stories series looks at a celebrity who is at the top of their game and the height of their career. We take a look at how they got to where they are today, what their daily life is like and where they are going next. All of the titles make fantastic resources for biography based project work; full glossary and index included.
