At the station, in the midst of trains, as at the beginning of his career as a street artist. Banksy conquer the Milan Central with his works from 3 December to 27 February. The exhibition The World of Banksy – The Immersive Experience (at the Mosaic Gallery, Piazza IV Novembre side) presents more than 30 new works never exhibited before, including Ozone Angel, Steve Jobs, Napoleon e Waiting In Vain, which are added to works and murals made by young anonymous artists from all over Europe.
No one has ever seen him, no one knows his face and yet Banksy is considered one of the greatest artists of the new millennium. To speak are his satirical and denunciation works performed with the stencil technique, which touch upon highly topical themes.
The route presents beyond 130 works that tell the world of the mysterious British artist, famous for tackling political and social issues with irony. Close to the most iconic masterpieces Flower Thrower e Girl with Balloon there is also a special space video section which traces the history and social message of the murals created by Banksy on streets, walls and bridges around the world.
The eccentric and incisive works on display allow the viewer to reflect on the system and society in which we live; they are a symbol of struggle and protest in a world where economic interests often prevail over what should be the good of the community. Banksy’s goal is to bring out through his art the problems that afflict contemporary society and to raise public awareness on the themes of consumerism, war and power through the use of metaphorical, amusing, provocative images of immediate visual impact.
