Bringing the historic streets of London to the steps of a special exhibition hall, located in the Arena Herzliya, the exhibition will take visitors on a sort of journey, exploring the questionable genius of the world’s most infamous street artist with a retrospective of over 80 of the artist's off-street masterpieces.
Most famously known for his stenciling technique, Banksy’s artwork combines dark humour with underlying political messages and social themes, which have made him one of the biggest contemporary artists of our time.
Curated by the artist's former manager, Steve Lazarides, the exhibition presents the largest collection of Banksy artworks to reach Israeli shores, including the iconic ‘Girl with Balloon’, ‘Flag Wall’ and ‘Laugh Now’ pieces. The exhibition also includes three pieces that have never been publicly exhibited.
All pieces included in The Art of Banksy exhibition are original works and limited edition screen-prints by Banksy himself, which are all unique in their form.
“This exhibition is a one off – never will you be able to see this amount of work in one place again. Once the show is over, the artwork will dissipate back to the other 40 collectors around the world, and the likelihood of them being brought together again in the future is very slim.”
