The exhibitions shows, among other the works Media Canvas and Flag Wall. The works are since 2006 aigan to see for the public. ‘Flag Wall is one of the crucial work of Banksy. He became known with it during the Barely Legal exhibition in Los Angeles in 2006. Many stars came showed up, such as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. When Banksy became a hype, his star rose quickly, “says the curator of the exhibition Chris Ford.

Banksy keeps his identity carefully a secret , but that prevents not the success of this street-art artist, on the contrary.  Apart from his anonymity, his work has great artistic quality and is a perfectionist. Praised all over the world an his work and quality is compared to that of Picasso and Andy Warhol.

Banksy (04-05-1974), born in Bristol, England often works with templates if he makes his illegal murals. The artist chose this technique when he moved from Bristol to London. With templates, you can work fast, so fast that you do not get caught, Banksy says.

Although nowadays cities are happy when there appears a real Banksy on a wall, that was initially been not the case. Banksy began when he was treated similarly in the nineties as other graffiti artists. Graffiti is illegal and must be banished. Most of the work of Banksy can be seen in Bristol, New York and London, but he also worked in the Gaza Strip.

The exhibition gives you a good overview of his work. Too bad that it is only a small part to see and quickly walk trough in my opinion. Much depends on the same work, sketches and in different colours or sizes. Yet this exhibition should not be missed by Banksy because he represents the time in which we live and the political message or Social criticism.
