About Banksy

The name Banksy is synonymous with a British artist who has not yet been identified. Since the 1990s, street art artworks have been appearing regularly around the world, often accompanied by great media response. His art often carry a socio-critical message; they are characterized by satire and a frequent reference to current topics.

According to his own statements, Banksy comes from the underground scene in the British city of Bristol, where he was largely inspired by graffiti artists, bands like Massive Attack and the pop art icon Andy Warhol. Only a small number of his stencils and screen prints are available through his own agency Pest Control; they often end up with private collectors or at auctions.

A similar auction at the well-known auction house Sotheby's caused a stir when Banksy had one of his most famous works, Girl With Balloon, shredded during the auction.

Phenomenon of our time

Event organizer Alexander Zahlmann has a clear opinion about the artist's work: "Banksy is one of the most brilliant and important Artist and a phenomenon of our time. His works are a challenge to the system, a protest, an extremely well-built brand, a mystery and also a violation of the law."

"According to the idea behind the exhibition, every visitor will be able to decide for themselves in the end: Who is Banksy - a genius or a vandal, an artist or a Businessman, a provocateur or a rebel? The exhibition shows the entire range of Banksy's talent - always multidimensional, always encouraging people to think and make their own decisions. His work is always current, very comprehensive, his pictures speak and flow directly into the souls of entire generations."
