Banksy is the world's most famous living artist, yet no one knows who he is. For more than twenty years, his wryly political and darkly humorous spray paintings have appeared mysteriously on urban walls around the globe, generating headlines and controversy. Art critics disdain him, but the public (and the art market) love him. In her new illustrated book, Banksy: Completed, artist and art critic Carol Diehl is the first to explore the Banksy mystery in depth, revealing unexpected roots in such diverse sources as Greek mythology and post-Holocaust political theory.
