Banksy Book Launch


In 11 years’ time, I’ll make a podcast episode about graffiti

Street art is so hot right now

Someone wrote a book on Banksy. And, as everyone knows, when a book is written, it must be launched. Home Sweet Home, a biography of the artist, was welcomed into the world with a party at Cargo on Rivington Street in east London last night.


I got high on the sweet-smelling fumes of all the spray paint as real-life graffiti artists shook those cans and did us some art right before our very eyes. Also, there was some singing. Here’s what I witnessed:

This is my favourite Banksy – she’s in Camden:
