Banksy’s coming to South Bank
Love street art? Fan of Banksy? Then you’ll be thrilled to hear that the enigmatic street artist’s pieces are now on show in South Bank.
The Banksy Prints Gallery will be opening at the ultra-hip Mondrian London Hotel on December 1. The eponymous gallery will not only show Banksy’s prints, but will also show a selection of photographs by Steve Lazarides, who has been photographing Banksy since the early 1990s following a chance meeting with the artist at a photo shoot for Sleaze Nation magazine. Since the encounter, Lazarides went on to work with Banksy, helping to create the buzz and controversy around "street art" that we know today.
Lazarides said, "This gallery will sell secondary market Banksy prints and will also have a collection of my photographs from our time together, as well as displaying ephemera from the period."
The gallery opens to the public Friday 2nd December 2016.
Address: 22 Upper Ground, London, SE1 9PD (Based in the Mondrian London hotel).
Opening Times: Tuesday–Saturday 11am–7pm
Admission is free
