Banksy Banksy, Greatest Hits: 2002-2008
The anonymous artist is renowned for using stencils to create his iconic grafitti in the streets, but did you know he also used stencils and spray paint on canvas? Here's a look at a few different stencil works that feature in our current exhibition...
This July, Lazinc will be diving into the gallery's street-art roots, showcasing an exhibition featuring Banksy’s most iconic images. The powerful show will explore the anonymous artist’s most well-known artworks, including Girl and Balloon, 2006; an artwork that was voted as the nation’s favourite in 2017.
Lazinc’s link to Banksy started with co-founder Steve Lazarides, who met the anonymous artist in 1997 when he took his portrait for Sleaze Nation magazine. Soon after, Steve Lazarides was Banksy’s official photographer and gallerist. Together they staged some of Banksy’s most well-known exhibitions such as Crude Oil, Barely Legal and Turf War. Although the pair parted ways in 2008, Lazinc continue to champion the secondary-market when it comes to Banksy Originals and Prints and this exhibition will be no different.
This will be the first UK exhibition which allows visitors to see Banksy’s work all in one place; from stenciled canvases, to unique paintings, to limited-edition prints and many more. The unique collection will reaffirm how relevant the anonymous artist’s social and political comments are in today’s world, whilst letting art enthusiasts view works they may have never known existed.
