The groundbreaking 'Dismaland' show, his Paris '68 revisited works, The Walled Off Hotel, Brexit, Cans Festival, Brookyln and Basquiat, as well as new works from Gaza and New York. Also featuring the controversial 'Cheltenham Spies' as well as 'Girl with a Pearl Earring', 'Art Buff' and the spectacular 'Mobile Lovers' which appeared outside Bristol Boys Boxing Club. 248 pages featuring his greatest works of art in context.
