The Art of Banksy unauthorised private collection comes to London

Banksy to me is the modern version of Salvador Dalí with his work and even himself surrounded by mystery. Why? as his art work is a modern day surrealism with hard hitting messages which spring up literally anywhere. Plus Banksy is like a superhero as no one knows who he is! but he brings hard hitting messages and comical surreal art to our streets. Now for a limited time an unauthorised collection of private art by Banksy has popped up in London’s Covent Garden where you can view some well known favourite political surreal art pieces by Banksy and so much more.

I went on along on a PR invite and read inspirational quotes by Banksy as well as discovered pieces of art which I’ve never seen before, with some pieces of art making me question what is the meaning of life and humanity?

Banksy

Nobody knows who is Banksy, yet everybody knows he is a graffiti artist and prankster. Banksy is one of the most famous yet the most mysterious graffiti artists in the world. Some consider him a prankster whereas others a superhero of art. Banksy’s art pops up literally anywhere and everywhere with his enigmatic and surreal art from the UK to Sydney. Expressing always a strong political statement with poetry, energy and humour.
