Paintings, Prints and Sculptures From Across The Banksy Collection On Display To The Public In Rare Exhibition.
An artist for whom the streets of the world normally function as his canvas, War, Capitalism and Liberty, opening later last month, brings the work of renowned street artist, Banksy, into a gallery space.
The exhibition, so called to reflect the three main themes ubiquitous throughout Banksy’s pieces, offers a rare opportunity to view works by this private and subversive artist, whose identity remains hidden to this day and whose anti-capitalist and pacifist message has resonated with a whole generation of young people.
Like the artist himself, the themes of Banksy are both provocative and ambiguous, requiring the audience to make sense of the images. His unique style of political satire has addressed topics such as capitalism and consumerism, the Palestine-Israel conflict, and more recently, the refugee crisis.
It is hard to define such an artist who since the inception of his work in the south-western town of Bristol, England, and throughout his career, has remained at the forefront of an underground movement seeking accessibility and democratisation of the art world.
