Rome's Chiostro del Bramante presents ALL about BANKSY from 5 May until 9 January 2022.
The new exhibition, which follows an earlier Banksy show at Chiostro del Bramante, is dedicated to the anonymous British street artist known for powerful, satirical and thought-provoking murals.
The exhibition will feature about 250 artworks created between 1999 and 2020 - on loan from private collections - in addition to photographs and video footage providing insights into the world's most elusive artist.
For full information and visiting details see Chiostro del Bramante website.
“Discover, approach, know, recognize Banksy. During our first exhibition A Visual Protest (September 2020 – March 2021), given the impossibility of staying open, we made a concentrated effort so that the public would not be disappointed, and would not be left without Banksy. This is how we came up with the idea of a second exhibition, of course dedicated to the artist and his works, and this desire was realized thanks to our collaboration with Butterfly & David Chaumet – Butterfly Art News, curators of the project”.
Supposedly born in Bristol in the early 1970s, Banksy is considered one of the greatest exponents of street art and was ranked 14th on ArtReview’s 2019 list of the one hundred most influential personalities in the art world. But no one knows his identity. What we do know is that he was forged in the Bristol underground scene, where he collaborated with several artists and musicians, and that his artistic production began in the late 1990s. From this moment on, he began to invade numerous cities, from Bristol to London, to New York, to Jerusalem to Venice with graffiti and various performances and infiltrations.
