Wall and Piece comprises a three-part series of previously published books by Banksy, including Banging Your Head Against a Brick Wall, Existencilism, and Cut It Out. Banksy has been called an artistic genius, political activist, painter and decorator, legend, as well as an infamous graffiti artist; his identity remains unknown. “Graffiti is not the lowest form of art…it’s actually the most honest artform available,” says Banksy. “There is no elitism or hype, it exhibits on some of the best walls a town has to offer, and nobody is put off by price of admission.” Banksy has painted walls, bridges, monuments, and streets in cities across the globe. He has smuggled his artworks into the four major modern museums in New York City, draped his exhibits from London’s Tate Gallery, and decorated Israel’s West Bank barrier with ironic imagery.
