A major new exhibition, the Art of Banksy, opens at the Entertainment Quarter in September and continues through until October 27.
The Art of Banksy is the world’s largest touring collection of Banksy’s work and showcases 80 original works associated with one of the most intriguing and talked-about artist in modern history.
These privately-owned pieces of Banksy’s works include canvasses, screen-prints 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.
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.
“You will never again have the opportunity to see this many of Banksy’s works in one place,” said Steve Lazarides.
“He is the most powerful and recognised artist of a generation, who has been completely ignored by the establishment thus far.”
The exhibition has already visited Tel Aviv, Auckland, Toronto and Miami, and now this unique exhibition comes to Sydney for a limited season.
Tickets for the Art of Banksy can be purchased at Ticketek.
