BANKSY. The Street is a Canvas

Banksy’s impact on the art world has been nothing short of incredible. The interest in street art shot up quickly as Banksy entered the scene, so much so that a term was coined for this interest — the Banksy effect. In the past, street art was often considered vandalism and as such was not even considered art. However, Banksy's arrival on the urban art scene changed that perception and brought street art and graffiti to the spotlight.

At Círculo de Bellas Artes Madrid, visitors have a chance to see some of his most famous artworks up close. The exhibition, called BANKSY. The Street is a Canvas, will be held between December 3, 2020 to May 9, 2021.

Please note that the exhibition is not authorized by Banksy himself, and is an unofficial exhibition of his works.
