Who's Banksy? Clues about the mysterious artist!

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 Philadelphia, 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

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 Philadelphia for the first time!

    “Loved Banksy art work, presentation was great as well. Went there with my kids, they enjoyed it as well. Highly recommended.”

  • Loretta S.

    “Definitely genius. The audio tour you access through a phone is great. It gives so much back ground about each piece. Bring ear buds and make sure your phone is charged. Planning on going again!”

  • Wayne T.

    “Amazing show. If you are a street art fan this is the show of the year. A ton of work and it's not just on the wall with a tag card. Really enjoyed the Immersive 4 walled video. Watched it a couple of times and just kept turning around to catch as much as possible. Also the VR experience was very cool. tons to experience. Overall I was totally satisfied and have been considering going back to see it again.”

    “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!”

  • Rob F.

    “This is a fabulous exhibit. The audio component (which you access through your phone, so bring your earphones) is really well done and informative. The VR is well worth the additional $5 — was very cool!”
