The Art of Banksy will see 80 original works showcased for lovers of his anti-establishment street art.
Off the back of exceedingly popular exhibitions in Melbourne, Amsterdam, Tel Aviv, Auckland, Toronto and Miami, the world’s largest touring collection of original Banksy works is now coming to Sydney. Curated by Banksy’s former manager and photographer, Steve Lazarides, the exhibition will feature over 80 of Banksy’s iconic art pieces, including Girl With Red Balloon, Flower Thrower and Rude Copper.
Somewhat controversially, the British born street artist has not granted Lazarides permission to host the exhibition.
Opening at the Entertainment Quarter in Sydney from 13th September, The Art of Banksy will display works from 1997 to 2008, the period which resulted in Banksy’s most recognisable and well-known works. Canvasses, screen-prints and sculptures are set to feature, giving lovers of his politically charged pieces the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of his most iconic works.
Banksy, whose identity remains one of the best kept secrets in the art world, is an enigmatic artist and world-recognised political activist. His stencils, combined with iconic anti-establishment slogans, never fail to generate attention and controversy.
