Banksy is an artist whose work and influence can be seen across the world – from the original street art in Bristol and across the UK to bigger projects like Dismaland and the Walled-off Hotel. It is difficult to amass a collection of Banksy’s work, with so much adorning buildings or sitting within private collections. However, the curators and artists behind The World of Bansky have done an impressive job.
This immersive experience at Espace Lafayette-Drouot takes some private pieces on loan and a series of recreations of famous murals. This is a great way to see many of the iconic designs and to compare themes throughout the artist’s career. Many feature children – either exploited or symbols of rebellion and hope. Then there are the alternative images of authority figures. They may not always be the real thing, but they have the same design and meaning. There is a lot to see here and you can visit the show until the 29th of September.
