Born in Bristol around 1974, generically classified as a street artist, Banksy is an exemplary case of popularity for a living artist since the days of Andy Warhol. Today, many consider him the greatest global artist of the new Millennium.
Banksy represents the best evolution of the original Pop Art. He is the sole artist able to create a link among pop roots, the hip hop culture, Eighties graffiti, and the new attitudes of the digital era.
This exhibition at Palazzo dei Diamanti is an impressive event that brings together over 100 original works and objects by the British artist: paintings and many of his stencils, silkscreen prints, installations. For the first time, an exhibition explores Banksy’s images within a semantic framework that brings together their origins, references, links between the elements, and their relvant contexts.
Entrance to the exhibition is permitted in limited numbers. Visitors with reservations will be granted priority entrance.
We strongly recommend the use of the online ticketing service.
