This Huge Banksy Exhibition Features 80 Artworks - And It's Coming To London In April

A huge Banksy exhibition opens in west London this April — featuring 80 prints, canvasses, screen prints and sculptures by the incognito street artist.

The Art of Banksy claims to have the world's largest collection of privately-owned Banksys, and has already visited cities including Melbourne, Tel Aviv, Toronto and Miami.

Girl with Balloon is the only confirmed artwork so far; though the first incarnation of the artwork appeared on London's Waterloo Bridge in 2002, there have been multiple Banksy variations on the theme. Versions of other works which have appeared at previous Art of Banksy shows include CCTV Angel, Grin Reaper and Pulp Fiction.

The Art of Banksy comes to an as-yet undisclosed South Kensington location on 23 April. Ticket information has not yet been published, although you can register your interest.

Unlike the Gross Domestic Product store in Croydon last year, this show is not officially sanctioned by Banksy.
