The Banksy ‘Greatest Hits: 2002-2008’ Retrospective Exhibition by Lazinc Gallery

In the Street Art world and popular culture as a whole Banksy is someone who needs no introduction, an artist, whose identity remains unknown, and whose works and status many adore and many loathe, either way you cut it no other Street Artist has been responsible for the rising popularity of Street Art in the last fifteen or so years. His distinctive stencil works focus on dark humour and satirical representations of social and political themes and in the process he has placed his works all over the world now, with several of his public works having now become commodities, resulting with the adorning walls being removed from buildings and sold for £1 million+ prices. Banksy’s art is very much big-business.

Here we are taking a look at the current and rather specific retrospective of Banksy’s career entitled ‘Greatest Hits: 2002-2008’ which is certainly the most comprehensive of several such shows we have seen over the years around London. Curated by Steve Lazarides the gallery co-founder, who worked with Banksy from 1997-2008, the show presents a number of original unique oil paintings, stencil works on canvas and in print form as well as a few sculpture works from the period where Banksy took over the world. Well worth a visit the show runs until September 8th and can be found at the Lazinc Gallery in Sackville Street, Mayfair.
