Satire, dark humour and irony. If Banksy isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you hear these words, then you need to verse yourself in his latest exhibition. A rare collection of the controversial artist’s works are set to go on display at London’s Lazinc gallery next month.
The exhibition, titled Banksy, Greatest Hits: 2002-2008, will present Banksy’s social and political comments through stencilled canvases, paintings and limited-edition prints.
Some of his best-known works including ‘Girl and Balloon’, ‘Love Is In The Air’ and ‘Show Me the Monet’ will also be on show. It’s all made possible by the co-founder of Lazinc, Steve Lazarides, who worked with Banksy for a decade as his agent.
For those travelling Europe mid-year, the exhibition is on display at Lazinc in London from July 12 to August 25. The rest of us can keep our fingers crossed for an Australian exhibition sometime soon.
