The Mystery of Banksy
World famous but still a mystery – Banksy, the Bristol-born and still anonymous graffiti artist and painter, known for challenging the boundaries of the art market has been causing a sensation with his work for years. Now, with “The Mystery of Banksy – A Genius Mind”, a brand new show in honor of the art icon has come to Germany!
On display will be an unprecedented presentation of more than 150 works by the celebrated street art superstar.
Graffiti, photographs, sculptures, video installations and prints on various materials such as canvas, fabric, aluminum, forex and plexiglass were reproduced and compiled especially for this special show.

In line with Banksy’s motto “Copyright is for losers © TM”, this homage and the works shown are not officially authorized due to its anonymous status.

Who is Banksy?
When it comes to street art you can’t ignore him: Banksy, probably the most famous and the most mysterious graffiti artist in the world. His identity is being successfully kept secret by the 45-ish-year-old Brit. His works, on the other hand, not only conquer the streets all over the world but also the auction houses – and with great success: He is currently one of the most expensive artists of our time!
Banksy is without a doubt the undisputed king of street art, a brilliant spirit and star artist who touches people with his sometimes ironic, sometimes political, but always poetic works and speaks to them from the heart. When the city of Bristol put its citizens to a vote in 2009 whether to remove Banksy‘s works from the townscape, 97 percent voted against it. A clear vote for his art. Banksy is a star far beyond the boundaries of the art market. In 2010, Time Magazine put him on its list of the world’s 100 most influential people for the first time, alongside personalities such as Barack Obama, Steve Jobs and Lady Gaga.
