For years, the British graffiti artist known as Banksy stenciled his works on public walls, ten pound notes, and inside animal enclosures at zoos. Impossible to ignore, his works became collectibles, fetching high prices at gallery shows and auctions. As the fame of the relentlessly anonymous artist grew; so too did the controversy surrounding his work: Was he a guerrilla rebel or a sellout; a prescient artist or a cynical opportunist? Will Ellsworth-Jones' breakthrough biography won't settle all those squabbles, but it will serve as a revealing introduction to an artist who refuses to be ignored.
