The Man Behind The Book

A Banksy Book that Banksy Cannot Control
Interview with the Author Will Ellsworth-Jones


Never showing his face, never doing interview with anyone except by email, the most mysterious street artist Banksy, whose portrait has been fascinatingly built up by a new book on him – THE MAN BEHING THE WALL by Will Ellsworth-Jones. This time the artist is pieced together by the author through secret talks to both friends and enemies once close to him, which even Banksy himself cannot control. We are here talking to the author, the man behind the book, about the behind-the-scene story of this must-have unauthorized biography of Banksy at the beginning of 2013.
