A permanent exhibition space in a London gallery called the “Banksy Bunker” is opening.
The gallery will be open six days a week at the Hang-Up Gallery in Dalston and will feature a continuously changing display of his work, including prints, canvases and sculptures. Everything on display will also be available for purchase by the general public.
“There’s currently nowhere in the capital to view a permanent Banksy collection,” said Ben Cotton, gallery director at Hang-Up. “So we thought we’d change that. It’s an intimate space packed full of a broad cross-section of his work from the start of his career to the present day – so whether you’re a Bansky aficionado or a seasoned collector it’s certainly worth a look.”
The news of this exhibition comes at a time when the hype surrounding the enigmatic artist is as strong as ever, especially after the success of his Dismaland theme park earlier this year and new rumors of his identity surfacing.
Currently there are 15 pieces on display at Hang-Up’s Banksy Bunker, open from Tuesday to Sunday and admission is free.
