Go Buy This: Robert Clarke – “Seven Years with Banksy”

“There have a been a few different books written about Banksy in recent years featuring images of his work around the world. This latest release ‘Seven Years with Banksy’ by one of Banksy’s associates, Robert Clarke is different as it profiles Banksy ‘the person’ detailing their relationship over a period of time. The Author gives an interesting insight into the life, mind and work of Banksy through the experiences that he and the author Robert Clarke shared together during Banksy’s formative years.”

“Clarke takes us through his first encounters with Banksy, which took place in a hotel in New York in the 1990s, and candidly describes how his friendship with this young English artist developed. Along the way, readers will discover more about the ever-mysterious Banksy – what makes him tick, why he does what he does, and why he ultimately rejects fame in favour of anonymity, setting him apart from many other popular artists of our time. This extraordinary memoir follows Banksy’s development over these years and describes a variety of escapades he shared with the author as their friendship developed, from late-night excursions into London Zoo to Millennium Eve in their home town of Bristol. – The book is a must for anyone interested in the mystery man behind the stencils”
