‘Banksy – Restored and Reclaimed’ highlights the journey of many of Banksy’s most notorious creations from their initial disruptive appearance on the street, their subsequent descent into disrepair, and their ironic reclamation into museum-worthy masterpieces.

‘Banksy – Restored and Reclaimed’ is the first show dedicated to addressing the controversial and intriguing plight of Banksy’s art from the street to the Auction House and beyond.

Visitors will have the unique opportunity to witness several actual Banksy walls and gain insight into the stories behind each piece, as well as the unexplored world of saving contemporary street art from destruction for future generations. Featured walls include Yellow Lines Flower Painter, Peace is Tough – Choppers, If Graffiti Changed Anything, Have a Nice Day, Hula Girl, and Extinction Rebellion. Also on show will be the famed Girl with Balloon.
