The Art of Banksy is the world’s largest touring collection of Banksy’s works. The Art of Banksy has already generated international excitement when it visited Tel Aviv, Auckland, Toronto and Miami, and now this unique exhibition comes to Australia for a limited season.
“Nobody ever listened to me until they didn’t know who I was.” – Banksy.
The Art of Banksy showcases 80 original works associated with, arguably, the most intriguing and talked-about artist in modern history. These privately owned pieces of Banksy’s works, include canvasses, screenprints and sculptures. While the touring exhibition is not authorised by Banksy, the show is curated by Steve Lazarides, the artist’s former manager and photographer.
“The Art of Banksy will serve as a welcome reminder of the explosive impact of the artist’s works, and of the powerful potential of street art. And that can’t be a bad thing” – TimeOut.
On display will be works from 1997 to 2008, the period which resulted in Banksy’s most recognisable and well-known works. Access to Steve Lazarides’ personal archive, photographs and art collection allows the exhibition to display works like ‘Girl With Red Balloon’, ‘Flower Thrower’ and ‘Rude Copper’.
