You can find all important details below the first image.
From May 24 – September 4, 2016, the Palazzo Cipolla museum in Rome will feature an extensive body of work from international private collections. The exhibition examines Banksy’s critical and yet artistic view of today’s society, politics, and certain events.
The show is conceived by Fondazione Terzo Pilastro (Italia e Mediterraneo), and curated by Stefano Antonelli, Francesca Mezzano, and Acoris Andipa. With a strong educational and school-focused component, ‘War Capitalism & Liberty’ is conceived as a non-profit exhibition. Since the late 1990s, Banksy is an incomparable artist with a huge influence on the urban art movement. Through the artist’s unknown persona and his provocative work, Banksy is one of the most discussed, debated, and acclaimed contemporary artists of our age. His media ranges from murals, sculptures, paintings on canvas and screen-prints to large installations. With a distinctive blend of humor and humanity, his artworks are made for the folks. We don’t known much about his personality. He is believed to have been born in Bristol, UK in 1974. His typical work draws inspiration from the Bristol Underground Scene. His distinctive style, which combines stencil and graffiti writing, was developed out of a need to quickly create large-scale artworks.
