THE ART OF BANKSY, the world’s largest touring collection of Banksy’s works, is now on at the Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park Sydney.
THE ART OF BANKSY has already generated international excitement when it visited Melbourne, Tel Aviv, Auckland, Toronto and Miami, and now this unique exhibition comes to Australia for a limited season.
THE ART OF BANKSY showcases 80 original works associated with, arguably, the most intriguing and talked-about artist in modern history. These privately-owned pieces of Banksy’s works, include canvasses, screenprints and sculptures.
Whilst the touring exhibition is not authorised by Banksy, the show is curated by Steve Lazarides, the artist’s former manager and photographer.
Who is Banksy?
Banksy, whose identity is the art world’s biggest secret, is an enigmatic artist and world-recognised political activist. His graffiti-influenced stencil technique, often combined with anti-establishment slogans, is immediately identifiable and never fails to generate attention and controversy.
On display will be works from 1997 to 2008, the period which resulted in Banksy’s most recognisable and well-known works.
Access to Steve Lazarides’ personal archive, photographs and art collection allows the exhibition to not only display iconic works like “Girl With Red Balloon”, “Flower Thrower” and “Rude Copper” but also gives the visitor a unique behind-the-scenes glimpse of the creation of the artworks by Banksy.
