"The Art of Banksy is meant to celebrate Banksy’s art and drive his message of hope and humanity to the world," said a spokesperson from the exhibit.
British anonymous street artist, political activist, vandal, and film director, Banksy, has been active since the 90s and is renowned for his politically driven street art graffiti.
His political and satirical commentary focused pieces of art have landed on streets, walls, and bridges of cities all over the world and continues to create and display his work in public spaces. His high-demand “installations” are often sold to the point of having pieces of wall they are on, removed. Banksy has also produced several pieces in the occupied Palestinian territories, including a tongue-in-cheek piece on the Israeli barrier wall built through the West Bank. The award winning artist also debuted his documentary film, “Exit Through The Gift Shop,” in 2010 at the Sundance Film Festival, and was nominated for an Oscar for it in 2011 for Best Documentary.
