WAR, CAPITALISM & LIBERTY: Banksy art show opens in Rome

Banksy is one of most discussed, debated and acclaimed cultural figures of our age.

As a street artist with his roots in Bristol, UK,
Banksy is arguably one of the street art’s most notorious champions with global recognition and influence. This exhibition will examine how social and political events of our world are depicted and viewed through the street art of Banksy; from his motif of monkeys declaring Laugh Now But One Day I’ll Be in Charge to the chilling image of Kids on Guns’.

The greatest crimes in the world are not committed by people breaking the rules but by people following the rules. It’s people who follow orders that drop bombs and massacre villages.

The collection of more than 100 Banksy paintings, prints and sculptures sourced from private collections around the world is being billed by organizers as the first time such a large collection of the artist’s work has been brought together in a curated, museum exhibition.
