A rich and varied artistic path, which documents the techniques used by Banksy (prints on paper or canvas, oil or spray on canvas, sculptures of painted resin or painted bronze) and the different topics. The exhibition shows the whole world of Banksy, documenting the techniques used in his works.
Probably born in Bristol in the early 1970s, Banksy is considered one of the greatest exponents of Street Art. Since the beginning of his career he has chosen anonymity, mainly to avoid polluting the perception of his identity and his works.
His artistic production began in the late Nineties in England, where he collaborated with various artists and musicians, and then invaded numerous cities around the world, such as London, New York and Venice with graffiti and many performances.
