The Art Of Banksy

Let me give you three clues. British. Mysterious. Graffiti artist. Who am I talking about? Banksy is one of the most intriguing artists of our time and one of the '100 most influential people' as Time magazine reports. He explores various concepts such as consumerism and uses satire and dark humour to express it through his artworks.

The exhibition features popular works such as 'Flower Thrower' or 'Girl with Balloon'. Melbourne, Tel Aviv, Toronto, Miami are some of the locations where over 750,000 visitors were delighted by the contemporary artist's creations. Don't miss the chance of enjoying his art in London.
