Banksy: Genius or Vandal?

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Banksy is the most notorious street artist of this generation, but his real identity remains a mystery to the world that admired his works as they spontaneously appeared on city streets overnight. Though images of Banksy's work have been widely circulated online, the artist has never organised conventional exhibitons, making it harder for international fans to see a collection of his works in person.
This unauthorised exhibition, which has already been held in five cities around the world, is made possible by private art collectors. 70 original Banksy pieces will be displayed for the first time in Japan, each conveying the artist's commentary on political, capitalist and humanitarian issues through darkly humorous sculptures and prints. Whether you see him as a genius or as a vandal, everyone has something to take away from this daring and thought-provoking collection.
