The world of Banksy – Milan
Up to May 15th, 2022. Over 130 works by the most famous street artist in the world
From December 3rd, 2021 to May 15th, 2022, “The world of Banksy, the immersive experience“, comes back at Milan Central Station in a much larger space than that of the spring exhibition at the Teatro Nuovo.
Banksy, the English street artist active since the ’90s, has become the most famous contemporary graffiti artist, despite the fact that he has always kept his identity hidden.
His eccentric and incisive works are designed to make people reflect on the society in which we live; they are a symbol of struggle and protest in a world where economic interests prevail over what should be the good of the community.
In the exhibition itinerary, visitors can admire over 130 works distributed in the magnificent space of the Mosaic Gallery inside the Milano Centrale station.
The reproductions of graphic murals will allow visitors to rediscover the Girl with the Balloon, the Flower Launcher, the Mobile Lovers and many other works by Banksy.
The new staging features more than 30 new works never exhibited before, including “Ozone Angel”, “Steve Jobs”, “Napoleon” and “Waiting In Vain”.
And next to the most iconic masterpieces “Flower Thrower” and “Girl with Balloon” there is also a special video section that traces the history and the social message of the murals created by Banksy on streets, walls and bridges all over the world.
In 2010, along with Lady Gaga, Obama, Robert Pattinson, Sir Elton John and Prince, Banksy has been named one of the most influential people in the world by Time Magazine.
Banksy has always been against the commodification of art so, as the organizers specify that also this exhibition is strictly unauthorized by the artist.
