Banksy Locations and Tours Volume 1

Banksy et al.

A Collection of Graffiti Locations and Photographs in London, England.

When it comes to art, London is best known for its galleries, not its graffiti. However, not if photographer Martin Bull has anything to say about it. While newspapers and magazines the world over send their critics to review the latest Damien Hirst show at the Tate Modern, Bull, in turn, is out taking photos of the latest street installations by guerilla art icon Banksy.

In three guided tours, Martin Bull documents sixty-five London sites where one can see some of the most important works by the legendary political artist. Boasting over 120 color photos, Banksy Locations & Tours also includes graffiti by many of Banksy’s peers, including Eine, Faile, El Chivo, Arofish, Cept, Space Invader, Blek Le Rat, D*face, and Shepherd Fairey.

Revised and expanded, Volume 1 has locations updated and 25 additional photos.

“Are you a big fan of Banksy and got no plans this summer? Then this is the perfect book for you. A no-nonsense travel guide to all his London locations.“ —Waterstones

“’Martin Bull charts the mysterious appearances—and sadly, sloppy destruction—of Banksy graffiti all over London, complete with maps and notes on the present condition of his works. Bull’s unpretentious style and dedication to graffiti art comes across in everything he writes.” —London Sketchbook

Banksy, Britain’s now-legendary “guerilla” street artist, has painted the walls, streets, and bridges of towns and cities throughout the world. Not only did he smuggle his pieces into four of New York City’s major art museums, he’s also “hung” his work at London’s Tate Gallery and adorned Israel’s West Bank barrier with satirical images. Banksy’s identity remains unknown, but his work is unmistakable.

Martin Bull is a London-based photographer, fan, curator, and promoter of street art. Martin donates 10% of his royalties to organisations that help people improve their lives.
