For residents of the Gold Coast, this is a great opportunity to see the first Banksy exhibition in Queensland.
Whether you are well versed in the art world, or not, Banksy is a name that most people recognise. Which is ironic, seeing as no one knows who he is. What started out as a few dissident graffiti murals in the 90s has now morphed into the signature iconography of one of the most famous contemporary artists.
