Beyond the traditional realm of the established art world and spawned from a movement that makes its own rules, Banksy is arguably the most famous, yet enigmatic artist to dominate the contemporary world.
Banksy’s street art has appeared all over the world with humorous, politically-slanted and sometimes challenging works. Curated by the artists’ former manager, Steve Lazarides, the exhibition presents the largest collection of Banksy artworks with a total value of more than 20 million Pounds.
Lazarides has selected a couple of the artist’s most talked about and topical artworks, including the iconic ‘Girl with Balloon’, ‘Kate Moss’ and ‘Media’. (visitberlin.de)
Original canvasses, paintings, sculptures and a interactive storytelling show the career of this unknown street artist. All pieces come from private collectors and the curator’s Steve Lazarides collection. The exhibition runs from June 15 to September 15, 2017.
