BANKSY:  THE MYSTERIOUS ARTISTIC GENIOUS

Nobody knows who is Banksy, yet everybody knows who he is. He is probably the most famous yet the most mysterious graffiti artist this world has seen. Some consider him a prankster whereas others, an artistic genius. From Bristol to Barcelona, Sydney to San Francisco, one thing that everyone agrees on is that his popularity cannot be denied. In 2010, Time magazine selected the British artist for its list of the world’s 100 most influential people among the company of Barack Obama, Steve Jobs and Lady Gaga. Millions know him, and his works are on sale for millions.

 

As the enigmatic and elusive king of street art, Banksy has a unique power. He has an unnerving ability to get to the heart of the matter and is able to express strong political statements with poetry, energy and humor. Any location with his works becomes “the” place to see. When Bristol city center asked residents to vote on whether they wanted Banksy work removed, ninety-seven per cent of people said it was a welcome addition to the town. His works are almost like limited gifts across the urban landscape. In 2005, even British Museum couldn’t resist Banksy’s charm and added a Banksy work to its permanent collection.

The Art of Banksy is a one off, never will you be able to see this amount of work in one place again.  The exhibition consists of key artworks- original canvasses, paintings, sculptures and interactive storytelling let’s you experience the poignant periods of Banksy’s career.
