An anonymous artist based in the UK, Banksy's works appear in unexpected places around the world such as streets, walls and bridges. Perceived by the art world as an artist who produces critical street art aimed at social issues, Banksy is also active in a wide range of areas such as theme parks, accommodation facilities and film production.
The exhibition that has sparked wonder and admiration in more than one million people since 2018 in 7 cities including Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Madrid, Lisbon, and Hong Kong is now coming to Nagoya!
It makes landfall with more than 70 pieces by Banksy. Is he an artist? A businessman? A genius? Or merely a vandal? Come and see with your own two eyes and decide for yourself!
