The Art of Banksy exhibition has already toured a number of countries, having previously graced Amsterdam, Melbourne, Miami, Toronto, Berlin, and Paris. Now it is heading to the Godot Institute of Contemporary Art in Budapest, Hungary.

The Art of Banksy features 80 works by the anonymous Street Artists including Laugh Now, Girl with Balloon, Pulp Fiction, Flower Thrower, Monkey Queen, Flag Wall, Soup Can. All the works come from a private collection.

Zoltán Sáfár, founder and owner of the Godot Institute for Contemporary Art, told Hungary Today that “The Art of Banksy Exhibition brings us works of Banksy that have appeared on weathered plaster, empty brick walls, and overpasses from around the world, and rethinks the works of an unknown genius to bring their essential message in the form of paintings, photos, and prints.”

The Art of Banksy exhibition openly advertises that it is unauthorised, as Banksy himself has previously announced on his website “members of the public should be aware there has been a recent spate of Banksy exhibitions, none of which are consensual. They‘ve been organised entirely without the artist’s knowledge or involvement.”

However this has not put off attendees eager to catch a glimpse of the world-famous artist’s work, which spans the years from 1997 to 2008 in the exhibition.

The exhibition will be held in the Tesla Loft of the Godot Institute of Contemporary Art, Budapest from 1 February through to 30 April.
