Banksy's Bristol: Home Sweet Home by Steve Wright & Richard Jones
Now in its fifth edition, Home Sweet Home has been fully revised and updated to include all the new artworks in Banksy’s hometown of Bristol.
These include the Barton Hill Flower Girl image painted just yards from the youth centre where youth worker John Nation inspired Bristol’s original graffiti artists in the mid 1980s and which made a major impact on the young Banksy.
Other updates include Girl In The Covid Mask from Spike Island, Devolved Parliament which was loaned back to Bristol Museum and Art Gallery before being sold for £9.9 million at auction, and Girl With A Burning Tyre, Banksy’s ‘gift’ to a South Bristol Primary School where pupils voted to name a House after the anonymous artist.
We also take a look at the amazing display at the Star And Garter, one of Banksy’s favourite pubs. The artwork is rumoured to have been influenced by Banksy.
The book features more than 175 images from Bristol plus rare shots of Banksy in Mexico where he toured as goalkeeper for the Easton Cowboys football team and other previously unpublished images.
