Banksy: Genius or Vandal ?

More

New York welcomes this protagonist illustrating social inequities in our dystopian world.

Banksy is a pseudonymous England-based street artist, political activist, and film director whose real name and identity remain unconfirmed. A subversive street art exhibit that takes us through every hot button issue from police, politics and protest to excessive consumption, and surveillance. Let’s not forget ‘the game of war’. Monkeys and rats have a special place in his repertoire.

We get an inside and outside tour of ‘The worst of view in the world’.
A hotel he purchased on the border of Israel and Palestine. The most chilling piece happens to be sustainable. Upcycled welcome mats hand made by refugees from lifevests left on mediterranean beaches. Oh and that infamous piece of art that shredded at auction - (renamed ‘Love is in the Bin’) originally valued at 1.8, will be auctioned at @Sothebys London on Oct. 14 and is expected to fetch between 5-8 million.

Wanna pre-game?
Watch the documentary ‘Exit through the Gift Shop’ directed by Banksy that tells the story of Thierry Guetta, a French immigrant in Los Angeles and his obsession with street art (and Banksy).

This exhibit is a must see.
