The unauthorized ‘Banksy Was Here: The Exhibition’ is currently open in Philadelphia — and new dates just got added! While Banksy may possibly be the most famous street artist of our time, he certainly is the most mysterious. The artist places more importance on his pieces — very witty and often political — to make a statement.
Over 80 of Banksy’s original works of art will be featured at the heart of 901 Market Street Suite 1150, where you’ll gather new insight on the elusive street artist.
Anti-authoritarian graffiti art is the source of his notoriety, but Banksy also bridges street art with installation and performance pieces. At ‘Banksy Was Here: The Exhibition’ his most valuable and rare pieces on mixed media will be on display. Prints, graffiti, sculptures… The exhibition will feature some of the artist’s most prized work, including the acclaimed ‘Balloon Girl’ and the ‘Happy Choppers’ series.
