The Art of Banksy comes to Auckland

05 Dec 2017

This summer, get up close and personal with the works of British artist Banksy, as the largest collection of his art hits Auckland's Aotea Centre, supported by Resene.

Curated by Steve Lazarides, a past collaborator of the influential artist, The Art of BANSKY will bring together 80 original works and selected prints, obtained from international collectors. Such a collection, which includes the iconic ‘Girl with Balloon’, ‘Flag Wall’ and ‘Laugh Now’ pieces, is never likely to be seen again, says Steve.

Auckland is one of the cities chosen for The Art of BANKSY exhibition, with other locations including Melbourne, Amsterdam, Istanbul, and Tel Aviv.

The exhibition will take place in Auckland's Aotea Centre, from 5 January until 6 February 2018. Tickets are on sale now, and are expected to sell fast. To buy tickets, and find out more about The Art of BANKSY, head to
