Review: Wall and Piece by Banksy

After seeing this next post on Tumblr, I simply had to add this book to my TBR.

“A wall has always been the best place to publish your work.”

I was looking for something to lift my spirits a bit, and thank the stars for sending this piece of art in my direction. Wall and Piece is guaranteed to brighten even your bleakest day.

Banksy, Britain’s now-legendary “guerilla” street artist, has painted the walls, streets, and bridges of towns and cities throughout the world.

Wall and Piece sets the mood with a phenomenal introduction that not only made me open up my eyes to a new world but also seriously educated me.

“The people who truly deface our neighbourhoods are the companies that scrawl their giant slogans across buildings and buses trying to make us feel inadequate unless we buy their stuff. They expect to be able to shout their message in your face from every available surface but you’re never allowed to answer back. Well, they started this fight and the wall is the weapon of choice to hit them back.” 

Not only is Bansky an incredible artist but his way with words lanced my heart. And thankfully that wasn’t the only written part because we then smoothly move onto the works of Banksy, where he occasionally attaches a piece text to describe the art.

And lastly, I was greatly surprised when it mentioned a short story that was also featured in Almost Famous Women:

Overall, I was incredibly amazed with Wall and Piece, especially getting to know that some of the works took only minutes to get done. MINUTES!!

4/5 stars
