"When I first met this scruffy, grumpy guy back in 1997 I would have never guessed that 20 years on he would be the most famous artist of his generation, and that his work would be studied on school curriculums"
"I worked with him for 11 glorious years, during which time we broke every rule in the art rule book along with a fair few laws. He has since gone on to become a global superstar and has retained his ability to shock and make people chuckle"
Who knows if 20 years ago, when his irreverent graffiti first appeared on the Bristol walls, Banksy imagined he would end up in an art gallery.

Los grandes éxitos de Banksy en Londres
En octubre de 2013 alguien instaló un puesto entre los muchos que hay en el Central Park de Nueva York. Vendía a sesenta dólares reproducciones muy populares del más conocido de los artistas callejeros. Vendió apenas ocho.
This week, model, photographer and Vogue contributing editor Laura Bailey reveals the beauty products necessary for post-travel revival, the swimwear to make your summer uniform, and the shirt to wear for every holiday occasion.
A Mayfair townhouse might seem like an unlikely location for a major Banksy exhibition, but a trip to this ‘Greatest Hits’ show serves as a reminder that the anonymous street artist is in fact very commercial.
Gallery owner Steve Lazarides brought together a variety of works that have surfaced on the secondary market in recent years, having parted ways with Banksy as his original official gallerist and photographer in 2008, when the artist stopped making work to sell.
From world-famous stencils to more unexpected oils to a few sculptures: Banksy's works are on display in a London gallery from Thursday, an opportunity to discover other facets of the mysterious British artist.
LONDON -- Street artist Banksy is known around the world for his simple graffiti stencils, often with a sharp political point, but a new London exhibition is an opportunity to discover his wider talents.
The weekend kicks off with a Friday 13th, so that’s good. Assuming we all survive that, then we’ve two whole days to recover from losing the World Cup ahead of us. Given the temperatures are rumoured to be hitting 29 degrees, that shouldn’t be too difficult. Here’s some ideas…
La galería Lazinc de Londres ha vendido ya las primeras piezas de la exposición de 'Grandes éxitos' de Banksy, por una de las cuales se ha llegado a pagar 1,5 millones de libras (alrededor de 1,6 millones de euros) en la preventa habilitada.
La exposición de Banksy en la galería londinense Lazinc, titulada «greatest hits» (algo así como «grandes éxitos), no abre al público hasta mañana (podrá visitarse entre el 12 de julio y el 25 de gosto), pero el artista británico ya está levantando expectación entre los compradores.
The appearance of a new Banksy in London can create quite a media frenzy. The last works to hit the streets in the capital came at the end of Summer 2017, during the highly anticipated Basquiat retrospective exhibition.
This summer, from Thursday, July 12 to Saturday, August 25, Lazinc will immerse in the roots of the urban art of the gallery, with an exhibition featuring the most iconic images of the British artist Banksy.

This summer the Lazinc gallery in Mayfair is hosting Banksy Greatest Hits: 2002-2008, a new exhibition that'll be the only place in the UK to offer the public a chance to view Banksy's work in one place.
Expect queues around the block in London’s Mayfair this week as gallerist Steve Lazarides and his Lazinc co-founder Wissam Al Mana open their “greatest hits” show of 23 works by Banksy, made between 2002 and 2008 (July 12-August 25).
A decade ago, as the street art market moved from couter-culture to mainstream, a new record was set for Banksy work - albeit for a spot painting by Damien Hirst, stencilled over by the Bristolian street artist - which sold for $1.9m at Sotheby's New York.
Throw out your Valium, people, all the joy you’ve been looking for in the miserable nooks and crannies of your terrible life is just around the corner because a fairly substantial show of work by anonymous street art badboy Banksy is coming to London this July.
Steve Lazarides, the dealer who is credited with launching Banksy’s career, is organising a “greatest hits” show of the Bristolian street artist’s works this summer, including one-off paintings that he expects will sell for more than £2m.
The Banksy Print Gallery was opened this month by Lazarides inside the Mondrian London, and has an on-street entrance to the gallery showcasing a broad range of prints by the artist, as well as photographs taken by owner Steve Lazarides who acted as Banksy’s agent until 2009.
Having first met Banksy in Bristol while taking his portrait for Sleaze Nation, photographer and gallerist Steve Lazarides forged a lasting relationship with the elusive street artist, becoming his agent and going on to play a major part in Banksy’s explosive rise to global fame in what Lazarides dubs “11 years of complete and utter insanity.”
