Who is Banksy? Banksy is the name of this mysterious artist whose graffiti art and poetic
stencils cover walls in major cities and capitals of the world. No one knows who he really is,
but everyone knows his name.
For the first time in the Emirates, the unique exhibition “The World of Banksy - The Immersive Experience” is devoted to the world-famous street artist, and reveals over 120 works spread in a gallery of over 1000sqm. The reproductions of graphic murals will enable visitors to rediscover the Girl with a Balloon, the Flower Thrower, the Mobile Lovers, and many other works by Banksy.
The exhibition is set up on the basis of the geographical distribution of Banksy's works. The countries covered are the United Kingdom, the United States of America, France (Paris), Canada, Australia, and Mali. Most of the murals have disappeared, but the exhibition makes them live again. It is a journey through time and places.
With over 500,000 visitors in 5 major cities in Europe (Paris, Barcelona, Prague, Milano, Brussels), the exhibition “The World of Banksy - The Immersive Experience” has been a successful event throughout the years. It has gathered visitor categories from art lovers and connoisseurs to curious discoverers, from very young boys and girls to older Banksy fans, from friends enjoying an impressive experience to families going out for a cultural happening. The feedback and comments have been glowing and there has been enthusiastic word-of-mouth praise since the beginning of this adventure. More Banksy exhibitions in Europe and in the world will soon open.
A photography exhibition will be hosted within “The World of Banksy” exhibition. Philippe Bernaerts, a famous Belgian photographer will be presenting a series of documentary pictures about street and city atmospheres. Moreover, as a premier, Philippe Bernaerts will be working on a photography project dedicated to Dubai that will be shown for the first time during the exhibition.
