Who is Banksy?

Banksy, the alias of an anonymous British artist probably born in Bristol in 1974, is considered one of the world's greatest exponents of street art. His true identity remains a mystery to this day, fuelling the fascination and curiosity surrounding his figure.

Characterised by an unmistakable stencil technique and often accompanied by biting slogans, his works are charged with satire and social criticism. Through irony and black humour, Banksy addresses burning issues such as war, globalisation, consumerism, inequality and power, inviting the public to reflect on complex and uncomfortable topics.

The exhibition

Throughout the exhibition area, unique installations, amusing photo opportunities and a vast collection of images narrate Banksy's artistic rebellion: you will feel as if you are travelling through the streets of London, where you will encounter the artist's greatest works and be able to explore, through the documentaries presented in the cinema rooms, the compelling life of this visionary genius. This exhibition is inspired by the London Underground: you will be guided through its 'stations', each with references to Banksy's underground culture and provocative art.

The real heart of 'BANKSY UNDERGROUND', however, lies in the opportunity to be the protagonist of the exhibition itself: you will be invited to leave your mark, to explore your creativity on the dedicated walls, embracing Banksy's 'spray and say' spirit. Do not expect original works, but interpretations that challenge the traditional concept of authenticity and promise to bring art closer to young and old alike.

Is the exhibition accessible?

The exhibition is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible as there are stairs and the venue does not have ramps. We always strive to make our events accessible to everyone and we regret that we were not able to do so in this case.

Yes, the ticket office on site is open during the exhibition opening hours.

Is it necessary to book the visit?

No, it isn't, but by buying tickets online you will be sure to visit the exhibition at the booked time.
