“The World Of Banksy” takes you on an enchanting journey with Banksy, the master of the streets, who has gone on to become a world-renowned entertainer.
A fascinating artist
Since its beginnings, Banksy has fascinated and challenged by its many works as beautiful as they are committed but also by its mysterious side. World famous street-artist, no one knows who hides behind this pseudonym even if many seek to unlock the secret. Banksy was born in Bristol, Great Britain, around the year 1974. He became a must in the world of Street Art in the mid-1990s with his provocative and unique style that made him a legend. In 2010, a documentary is dedicated to him, Make the Wall!, which aims to study the difficult relationship between street art and the commercial world that surrounds us.
Bansky is everywhere !
Today, there are thousands who want to see and take pictures of the artist’s many murals scattered around the world. From London to New York via Paris… Banksy is everywhere ! The experience begins at the lowest level with some of Banksy’s works from private collections. We find there in particular the “Gangsta Rat” but also the “Consumer Jesus” or the “Toxic Mary” intelligently diverting religion. Above, we find the essential “Kissing Coppers” illustrating the famous kiss between two British police officers but also the work “Turf War” where Winston Churchill is transformed into a punk icon with a green crest.
An immersive experience
Then there are the impressive reproductions of Banksy murals, created here by a dozen street graffiti artists from all over the world. The latter worked for a month, day and night, to recreate these incredible frescoes (in real size) within the different corners of the Espace Lafayette-Drouot ! In the end, “The World of Banksy – The Immersive Experience” offers us a very beautiful artistic journey within the unique, committed and subversive universe of Banksy. A piece of advice, do not hesitate to (re)discover this beautiful installation around Banksy !
