The Art of Banksy

  • The Paddock Russell St Ext Melbourne, VIC, 3004 Australia

Take an artistic adventure, exploring the mind of Banksy and his satirical street art.

Famous for his graffiti stencilling technique, Banksy’s artwork combines dark humour with underlying political messages and social themes, which has now seen him become one of the biggest contemporary studio artists of our generation.

More than 80 works will be on display, presenting the largest collection of Banksy artwork to ever draw upon Australia, including the iconic Girl with Balloon, Flag Wall and Laugh Now pieces.

Curated by Steve Lazarides, former manager of Banksy, the works come from his own collection and other private collectors.

The Paddock will be transformed into a hub of art, food, drinks and music, with local legends, Welcome To Thornbury providing an ever changing roster of much loved food trucks and to refresh your palette, craft beers and summer favourite cocktails will be served at the exhibition’s own Circle Bar.

The huge outdoor area, appropriately named The Railyard will host Live DJ’s to indulge the crowd on selected Friday nights and during Saturday sessions, heightening the Melbourne summer vibe.
