Banksy, Captured by Steve Lazarides 

In a Black Slipcase with Spot UV Varnish

Limited Edition of 1000 in a deluxe black case 

BANKSY CAPTURED by Steve Lazarides charts the birth of our modern day Robin Hood. A true art legend, a man able to articulate the voice of subculture that made its way to the mainstream.  

The negatives for these pictures lay in Lazarides’ loft for many years whilst Banksy’s rise to fame became undeniable these pictures took on a different meaning than just personal, private documentation. 

Along with never before heard tales of the artist at work and absurdist capers from their time working together BANKSY CAPTURED shares a moment in time before the artworld and most of the globe took note.

Banksy Captured is the only place to purchase the new book by Steve Lazarides. Pay witness to these untold stories and key moments in Banksy’s career, filtered through the shattered brain of Mr Lazarides.

Before he wrote this book though and prior to being Banksy’s agent, Steve Lazarides started out as picture editor and in-house photographer at Sleaze Nation, during this time he was also documenting various subcultures.

Some twenty years later, he has decided that not all of his archive is shit. In fact some of it borders on good and is exclusively revealed here, including portraits of the legend Banksy himself.

Lazarides went on from his photojournalist days to co-found Pictures on Walls, with Banksy...christ, there’s a theme here! Pictures on Walls sold artwork by JR, VHILS, Invader, Jamie Hewlett, Todd James, Zeus, Anthony Micallef, Jonathan Yeo, Mode2, 3D, Stanley Donwood, Faile, Bast, and Paul Insect. 

He continued to champion the street art movement into the mainstream at his Lazarides gallery (as well as prints at Lazarides Editions). 

Lazarides has always fought for the outsider and the voice of counter-culture. Here he gives you an exclusive glimpse into his world.

Steve Lazarides on Banksy's 'self-destruct' art stunt.

Banksy is an anonymous England-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director. His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti executed in a distinctive stenciling technique. His works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world.Banksy's work grew out of the Bristol underground scene, which involved collaborations between artists and musicians. Banksy says that he was inspired by 3D, a graffiti artist who later became a founding member of the English musical group Massive Attack.

Banksy displays his art on publicly visible surfaces such as walls and self-built physical prop pieces. Banksy does not sell photographs or reproductions of his street graffiti, but art auctioneers have been known to attempt to sell his street art on location and leave the problem of its removal in the hands of the winning bidder. Banksy created a documentary film, Exit Through the Gift Shop, billed as "the world's first street art disaster movie", which made its debut at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. The film was released in the UK on 5 March 2010. In January 2011, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary for the film. In 2014, he was awarded Person of the Year at the 2014 Webby Awards.
