Slippery, provocative, mysterious…. Banksy, the British artist whose identity is still unknown, is considered one of the main contemporary street art icons. His art, many times satirical, address universal issues such as politics, culture or ethics. In the center of Manhattan, an "unauthorized" Banksy’s exhibition, dedicated to the enigmatic artist, lets visitors dive into the controversial artistic universe of the most influential creator of present time
Banksy: Genius or Vandal - Exhibition | New York

80 genuine & authenticated artworks

The exhibition will include over 80 original works, sculptures, installations, videos and photos including the now classics of the artist (presumed to be British), like the essential 'Girl with Balloon', similar to the one destroyed by the artist at the auctioneer Sotheby's in London, his portrait of Lenin, the 'Fallen Angels' smokers cigarette or his explosive 'Monkey Detonator'. These pieces come from private collections and - with the collaboration of Lilley Fine Art / Contemporary Art Gallery - will be exhibited in New York for the first time!

    “I’ve been a Banksy fan since the early 2000s and have waited YEARS to go to one of his exhibits!! I was NOT let down! It was amazing to see so many of his early original pieces! Only bummer was NO gift shop!! I SO badly wanted to “Exit through the Gift Shop” but one didn’t exist!! I highly recommend checking it out especially if you’re a fan of his work!”
