“I’ve kept these stencils hidden away for years, mindful they could be used as evidence in a charge of criminal damage. But that moment seems to have passed, so now I’m exhibiting them in a gallery as works of art. I’m not sure which is the greater crime”

Why is Banksy in Glasgow?

The Exhibition will also be on show in Birmingham and Dublin.  The choice of Glasgow is explained.

 “For anyone who isn’t aware – the statue out the front has had a cone on its head continuously for the past 40 odd years. Despite the best efforts of the council and police, every time one is removed another takes its place.

This might sound absurd and pretentious (just wait until you see the rest of the exhibition) but it’s my favourite work of art in the UK and the reason I’ve brought the show here”.There is a wide range of art on view from Kissing Coppers to the famous half-shredded Girl With Balloon – find out whether it really was shredded.

Verdict

If you like Banksy, you will love this.  Not only is it a showcase of his stencil art, but also some of his moveable work including the meat truck.  Space is tight and the walk around slow.  It soon came apparent why mobile phones are locked, I think we would still be in there with everyone taking photos.  A wide variety of his work over the years and of course the opportunity to exit through the gift shop.  Here you can buy some Banksy merch (two posters for £15, book and tote bag £25) and leave your own mark with a graffiti wall.
