No one has ever seen him , no one knows his face , there are no photos that show him: yet Banksy conquers the world through works of unprecedented ethical, evocative and thematic power . Originally from Bristol, born around 1974, framed within the generic confines of Street Art, Banksy represents an exemplary case of popularity for a living artist since the time of Andy Warhol. To date we can consider him the greatest global artist of the new millennium.
The exhibition brings together over 100 original pieces by the British artist . There are freehand paintings from the very early period, the result of Blek le Rat's discovery and his use of the stencil. There are the serigraphs that Banksy considers serial craftsmanship to spread his messages.
