Toronto, ON – Starvox Exhibits and Live Nation announces a new allotment of additional tickets on sale and extended gallery hours for the North American Premiere of “The Art of Banksy”.
The exhibition runs from June 13 to July 11, 2018 at 213 Sterling Road (Lansdowne TTC stop). With over 40,000 tickets already sold, “The Art of Banksy” is proving to be a hot ticket in Toronto this summer!
This $35 million-dollar exhibit, making its debut in Toronto, features 80 original works associated with, arguably, the most intriguing and talked-about artist in modern history. “The Art of Banksy”, curated by Steve Lazarides, the artist’s former agent, displays the world’s largest collection of Banksy’s works ever exhibited.
Included in the exhibition are the iconic “Balloon Girl”, ranked in 2017 as “The United Kingdom’s number one favourite artwork”, “Flag Wall”, an urbanized take on the famous picture of soldiers raising the U.S. flag at Iwo Jima, “Laugh Now”, a witty piece depicting a foreboding message, and many other pieces, no less compelling and equally thought-provoking.
