Banksy’s work goes much further than graffiti on the wall, with carefully developed techniques, underlying, understandable, sometimes shocking messages, logical and communicative twists that make the contemporary artist’s portfolio unique, writes the portal.

According to curator Manu De Ros, the exhibition allows us to enter the artist’s universe and understand the themes he finds important.

An international team of painters works on the exhibition and reproduces the paintings using the same technique, details and colors each time the exhibition moves to a new location.

Nearly 100 items are on display, including murals from around the world, works of art, spectacular art installations and Banksy’s large-scale activities.

Who is Banksy? One person or a group? Is he a man, a woman? How does he choose his locations, what does he think of art, why does the world listen to him? The exhibition, which opens its doors today, May 3, attempts to answer these questions. The film will screen in Budapest until September before traveling to Venice, Naples and New York.
