120 pieces by world-famous street artist Banksy are coming to the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai as part of a huge new art exhibition.
The World of Banksy will feature over 100 works by the mysterious British artist and will include well-known artworks including ‘Girl With A Balloon.’
If you need a Banksy refresher, he’s a graffiti artist who stencils art on walls in major cities across the world. His work is brilliantly political and social with a very clear message. Just check out this mask/rat stencil he created on the London underground last year.
And, somehow, he’s managed to keep his identity a mystery, making him a proper myth and legend in the art world. His work is also very iconic and sells for huge sums of money, a lot of which he donates to charity.
The World of Banksy experience runs from April 5 until June 30 at the Theatre Mall of the Emirates with tickets available here.
Needless to say, the DubaiLAD team are big Banksy fans and will be there in force at the exhibition in Dubai.
And we’ll also be keeping our eyes peeled on the city streets in case he makes it over and decides to create art on a Satwa wall!
