Banksy: Building Castles in the Sky will be an incredible look at the elusive artist, from when he first appeared on the scene 20 years ago to a closer look at his work from “Dismaland.” The last exhibit, Banksy Expo: Genius or Vandal?, was an incredible multisensory experience of Banksy’s work, while this new exhibition will celebrate the artist in a museum-style setting, showcasing even more of his pieces from an exclusive private collection, so serious art lovers can rejoice!
