[dropcap style=”font-size:100px;color:#992211;”]T[/dropcap]he Art of Banksy, a touring exhibition, is set to open in London this April. Featuring 80 original and authenticated works, the exhibition holds the world’s largest collection of privately owned Banksy art.
On display will be prints, canvasses, screen prints, sculptures, unique works and limited editions from 1997 to 2008, the period which resulted in Banksy’s most recognisable and well-known works. Most infamous for his outdoor art, the artist’s indoor pieces — original and unique works on canvas, wood and paper — have so far been less exposed and are on display at this exhibition.
The Art of Banksy is neither authorised by the artist nor curated in collaboration with him. Produced by Global Touring Productions, the exhibition has previously visited Melbourne, Tel Aviv, Auckland, Toronto, Miami, Gothenburg and Sydney, with over 750,000 visitors worldwide.
The Art of Banksy will open for the summer season from 23 April with the South Kensington venue to be announced in due course. Audiences can register for pre-sale at artofbanksy.co.uk
