The most valuable and biggest collection of Banksy is coming to Berlin
The work of the world’s most famous – or most notorious – street art artist curated by Steve Lazarides is coming to Berlin after Istanbul, Amsterdam and Antwerp. Opening on June 15st in Felix, THE ART OF BANKSY exhibition consists of key artworks that mark the prolific street artist’s colorful climb to fame. Original canvasses, paintings, sculptures and interactive storytelling let’s you experience the poignant periods of Banksy’s career.
The pieces, coming from the curator Steve Lazarides’s own collection and other private collectors from around the world, are all original works and limited edition screen prints by Banksy himself, which are all unique in their form. It’s the most valuable and biggest Banksy collection in the world.
Lazarides has selected a couple of the artist’s most talked about and topical artworks, including the iconic ‘Girl with Balloon’, ‘Kate Moss’ and ‘Flower Thrower’ pieces which are regarded as key works in his oeuvre. ‘We are also showing a selection of photos that place the work in the right context,’ says Lazarides. ‘I took them myself during the collaboration with Banksy and they have never been shown before.’ The exhibition will present also one of Banksy’s largest piece “Forgive Us Our Trespassing!” (Acrylic, spray paint, and markers on 4 wood panels which is around 30m2) for the first time in Europe in the Berlin exhibition.
