The Art of Banksy opens in London’s Regent Street on 13th September; £17.50
The Art of Banksy – the major exhibition which has brought Banksy’s era-defining works to over 1.5 million visitors in 15 cities across the globe – is opening in London’s iconic Regent Street.
Drawing critical acclaim from across the board, The Art of Banksy is the world’s largest collection of original and authenticated Banksy artworks showcasing more than 110 pieces including prints, canvases, unique works and fascinating ephemera, many of which are on display for the very first time anywhere.
Visitors can expect to see the seminal artworks that brought the infamously anonymous artist international notoriety such as Girl With Balloon in three different colour variations, Flower Thrower and Rude Copper alongside truly one-off unseen pieces including hand-drawn sketches and personal works that Banksy created for friends, associates and lovers. The exhibition also focuses on Banksy’s Dismaland, The Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem and recent artworks acknowledging the ongoing war in Ukraine.
New for London and for the first time, close associates of the artist share their personal stories giving a unique insight into some of the world’s most famous images, engrossing background on how those headline-grabbing street art stunts were devised and how, with their irreverent wit and a biting political edge, this visionary took the art world by storm without ever revealing their identity.
In its new 2000 sqm Regent Street home The Art of Banksy is an unmissable show for anyone who wants to learn more about one of the world’s most important current artists and what their work reveals today; the power of art to affect social change, inspire the public and lay bare the undercurrents of social issues.
The Art of Banksy is not curated or authorised by the artist.
