Check out prints of the artist’s work and even take one home for yourself

It seems like Banksy comes around a little bit like buses; you wait absolutely ages for an exhibition and then two come along at once. That’s right, instead of having to walk the length and breadth of the country, searching out graffiti, you will now be able to check it out in a one-stop shop of Banksy artwork. Firstly, there’s the Hang Up Gallery in Stoke Newington which has a dedicated “Banksy Bunker”. In it, there is a selection of 15 works, spanning from the start of the beginning of the artists career to the present day. What’s more, it’s all up for sale!
Now there’s a second exhibition opening within the posh confines of The Mondrian Hotel. It’s solely dedicated to Banksy prints, as well as photographs of the artist’s work taken by colleague and friend, Steve Lazarides. “The Banksy Print Gallery” will be a celebration of the popular artist’s work, as well an opportunity to buy his prints: which is ideal and just in time for Christmas!
What: A Banksy Gallery has opened on the Southbank
When: It’s open now!
Where: 22 Upper Ground, SE1 9PD. (The Bunker is located in the Hang Up Gallery, 81 Stoke Newington Rd, N16 8AD.)
