The Art of Banksy

The Art of Banksy will be the premiere launch experience in our SECRET venue in the heart of San Francisco. This exhibition contains over 80 original works and opens on November 22nd.

THE ART OF BANKSY HAS WELCOMED OVER 750,000 VISITORS WORLDWIDE IN MELBOURNE, TEL AVIV, AUCKLAND, TORONTO, MIAMI, GOTHENBURG AND SYDNEY.

Banksy, whose identity remains a mystery is considered one of the world's top political artists. In 2010, Time magazine selected the British artist for its list of the worlds' 100 most influential people among the company of Barack Obama, Steve Jobs and Lady Gaga. Over the years, Banksy has carried out a considerable number of 'pranks'. One of the biggest stories in the art world recently was Banksy having his "Girl with Balloon" painting go through the shredder just moments after the work was sold for nearly $1.4 million at auction.

~~~~~~~~

Internationally known graffiti artist, Banksy, left his mark on San Francisco with his famous "Haight Street Rat" in April 2010. Little did he know that this act of "vandalism" would spark a chain of events that includes the rat being removed from a wall, Museums turning down a free Banksy street work, and a NY gallerist who has made it his business model to remove Banksy street works from all over the globe doing whatever it takes to get the rat in his possession.
