Who is Banksy?

Banksy's mystique and anonymity have played a significant role in his rise to international acclaim. Known for his distinctive stencil-based street art and political commentary, his works challenge societal norms and spark conversations on topics such as capitalism, social justice, and the environment. With his clever use of satire and striking visuals, Banksy has become a powerful voice in contemporary art, captivating audiences across the globe.

Experience the world of Banksy

Banksy’s latest "Cut and Run" exhibition invites viewers on an immersive journey through a series of installations, murals, and thought-provoking artworks. Held at the clandestine Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art, the exhibition adds an air of intrigue and excitement as visitors embark on a visual exploration of the artists politically charged and often satirical creations. Each piece within the exhibition is meticulously crafted to engage viewers on multiple levels. Banksy's iconic stencils, vibrant colours, and clever use of symbolism create a powerful impact, leaving visitors with a lasting impression.

“Cut and Run” features never-seen-before stencils, which have been painted on to create works of art in their own right. This is unprecedented for Banksy, since the artist has kept his stencils beneath the radar for fear of their use as “evidence in a charge of criminal damage”. Now the unorthodox artist seeks to commit the greatest crime of all, in his opinion: presenting the stencils in a gallery as works of art.

Banksy's "Cut and Run" exhibition stands as a testament to the artist's unwavering commitment to challenging societal norms through his art. With its thought-provoking installations and powerful social commentary, the exhibition urges viewers to question the world around them and take meaningful action. Banksy's ability to merge artistic brilliance with incisive critique continues to leave an indelible mark on the art world, reaffirming his status as a visionary force. "Cut and Run" is an invitation to engage, question, and embrace the power of art to inspire change.

Where can I see the show?

The exhibition is running between the 15th June and 28th August 2023 at Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow
