Good things come to those who wait and after more than a year of delay… The countdown is over. “The Art Of Banksy” has finally arrived onto London’s cultural scene and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it.
“The Art Of Banksy: Unauthorised Private Collection” is the finest and largest privately-owned exhibition of artwork from the controversial British “street art” artist, Banksy. A full immersion into Banksy’s mysterious universe with more than 70 pieces executed with different techniques: oil, acrylic on canvas, stencils, videos and photographs… giving you a real taste of the “internationally known, identity unknown” artist.
Banksy himself has given no acknowledgement or authorisation of this collection in any way and none of his pieces have been taken from the street. The right place to discover one of the most admired and recognized artists among art lovers and younger generations.
Step in, take a look inside and get ready to be welcomed by darkness. An enveloping multimedia installation has been created entirely just for you revealing and highlighting Banksy’s most iconic pieces. His illegal artworks produced on the street address universal themes such as politics, culture or ethics challenging the rules of the contemporary art game.
Among his most recognized pieces in this collection, you can find “The Girl with Balloon”, “Stop and Search”, “Monkey Queen”and “No Ball Games”. Alongside his iconic pieces, there are numerous provocative quotes on the walls of the believed to have been born-in-Bristol artist, as well as rock bands providing the soundtrack through the whole exhibition.
This greatest and latest collection aims to show Banksy’s talent and dedication in depth. He goes right into his audience without any filter making his artwork an inspiration to society. A very complete artwork that dives into the soul of each individual.
