A huge new Banksy exhibition in London has been announced.
The Banksy exhibition, The Art of Banksy, will feature 80 art works by the anonymous Street Artist and will be hitting London in April.
The Art of Banksy will feature some of Banksy’s best-known canvasses, silkscreen prints and sculptures. The only work confirmed so far is Girl With Balloon (which was originally stencilled on the walls of Waterloo Bridge in 2004.) However, in previous Art of Banksy exhibitions there have been works spanning Banksy’s career from 1997-2008 Pulp Fiction, Grin Reaper and CCTV Angel.
The Art of Banksy has toured several countries before finally arriving in London having previously toured Tel Aviv, Melbourne, Sydney, Miami and Toronto, attracting over 750,000 visitors according to the Art of Banksy website. The exhibition is comprised of privately owned works by Banksy.
Unlike the Gross Domestic Product Store that popped up in Croydon last year, which featured the stab vest worn by Stormzy’s headline act at Glastonbury, this has not been authorised by Banksy. In fact, the exhibition openly advertises that it is “unauthorized”.
The curator is Steve Lazarides, Banksy’s former photographer and manager until 2009 when they parted ways. Lazarides has claimed they are still on good terms in a recent interview, having self-published a book chronicling his time with Banksy.
The exhibition will take place in an as yet undisclosed location in South Kensington on the 23rd April.
