Experience the mysterious and quirky London artist Banksy for one more week in Melbourne. Banksy is well known for his controversial, provocative and contemporary art, his works consist of unique graffiti stencils, screen prints, sculptures and oil on canvas.
This is the first time Melbourne has housed Banksy’s work in an exhibition dedicated to him. The exhibition is curated by Steve Lazarides, former manager of Banksy. The works come from his own collection and other private collectors. With 80 works to see in the exhibition, including the iconic Girl with Balloon (2002), Flag Wall (2006) and Laugh Now (2002) pieces, the art of Banksy is not to be missed.
The exhibition is held in The Paddock behind Federation Square. For further entertainment, you will be greeted by live music, with an option to grab food, a cocktail or a beer in the Railyard.
Understand the mind of Banksy through his anti-establishment mentality. Walk through his world and let his thought-provoking art take you on a journey. This pop-up of Banksy’s controversial work is one not to be missed.
