A new book called Banksy: You Are An Acceptable Level of Threat and if You Were Not You Would Know About has just been published. The book features a huge collection of photos highlighting some of the most iconic works by the secretive street artist. From his early days tagging graffiti in Bristol in the 1990s to his more recent efforts, the new book chronicles Banksy’s celebrated street art career.
The book also covers Banksy‘s self-destructing Love is in the Bin artwork which Sotheby’s described as “the first artwork in history to have been created live during an auction.” It also has images of my favorite, his monumental Dismaland show, paintings and mixed-media sculptures from The Walled Off Hotel, Basquiat-inspired artworks on the walls of the Barbican, as well as new works from around the world.
Accompanying text provides descriptions to assist readers in understanding the context behind the artworks. Banksy: You Are An Acceptable Level of Threat and if You Were Not You Would Know looks like a must read for street art fans.
