It’s still impressive that for many years Banksy (he dealt with graffiti already in the 1990s) managed to remain anonymous. In the age of celebrities, now also in the time of social media, the street artist has never revealed his identity to the public, although he has achieved massive fame. And although you can fully experience his art in the place he was born, in the city, on the walls and walls, an exhibition of his work is a good way to replicate his work.

Today (12/02/2021) the exhibition “Banksy’s Art”. Without restrictions. “

In the area of ​​the complex, which previously housed a vodka factory, more than 100 works were collected by the British. Some are original, some are presented in the form of pictures, some in the form of prints, and also in large format, such as one of his most famous works, The Thrower. The gallery also includes the entrance to Dismaland, a fictional theme park, clearly referring to Disneyland, which Banksy created in 2015.

Despite the fact that Banksy is not as radical in his actions as he was in his early years – his work has sold for millions of pounds, the later models that appear on the walls are no longer treated as acts of vandalism, but rather as a tourist attraction – in this gallery, I missed a step Simple behind the tires.
