Good news, Banksy fans: you no longer have to scour the walls of the city to find his artworks. The elusive graffiti artist now has his very own permanent exhibition space at an east London gallery.
Dalston’s Hang-Up Gallery has unveiled the ‘Banksy Bunker’: a room dedicated to the 'Dismaland' creator's canvases, prints and sculptures. ‘There’s currently nowhere in the capital to view a permanent Banksy collection,’ says gallery director Ben Cotton. ‘So we thought we’d change that. It’s an intimate space packed full of a broad cross-section of his work from the start of his career to the present day – so whether you’re a Bansky aficionado or a seasoned collector it’s certainly worth a look.’ There are 15 works on display in the Bunker at the moment, but it's all up for sale, so it's unlikely you'll ever see the same work twice. And unlike out on the streets, there's no worry they'll get covered up by the council. Woop!
Hang-Up Gallery is at 81 Stoke Newington Rd, N16 8AD. Open Tuesday to Sunday from noon until 6pm. Free.
