Most of the works presented date back to the years 1997 to 2008. This period is considered to be the one that led to the most iconic and best-known works by Banksy.
The artworks by Banksy that will be presented are all from private collections. This exhibition is not authorized by the artist. The curator of the exhibition, Steve Lazarides, was Banksy's gallery owner until 2009, when they separated.
