Banksy Exhibition at Andipa Gallery

Lock Picking Rat by Banksy

Not only the world’s most famous graffiti stencil artist, England’s own beloved Banksy is also one heck of a studio artist. Don’t believe us (or any of the hype surrounding Banksy)? See for yourself at Andipa Gallery, where – starting this Friday – many of Banksy’s works is to be on view. Most of the exhibition is comprised of studio pieces, many of which are rare and previously unseen. One such rare work is an exceptional acrylic on canvas painting titled Sharks (with a biting price tag of about £40,000). However, a few of Banksy’s street pieces are included to demonstrate “the diversity and breadth of Banksy’s output.” Unlike the studio pieces, the street art’s not for sale as Andipa Gallery’s belief is that “street art should remain within its original context.”

Please note: Andipa Gallery does not represent Banksy; Banksy is not involved in the exhibition; the works by Banksy on view at the gallery were assembled from the secondary market.

Yeh i heard that he was not happy with his prints being sold via this gallery and that they had not been authenticated by his company "Pest Control".

Pest Control authenticate all of the Banksy work from street pieces to prints and paintings. They didn't have a say as i am led to believe.

canvas prints

Theres loads of companies out there selling banksy art on there website. its easy for people to get banksy art now any way people can just upload an image and have it turned to a canvas print. As long as the image as no copyright then theres no problem. Maybe people love banksy artwork but maybe cant afford £40.000 price tag. Just a slighty cheaper option
