The Art of Banksy: “Without Limits” has opened to the public – and since it’s only an hour from the Gold Coast, it’s well worth a visit! Open now at Queens Plaza in Brisbane, you will get to step inside the world of Banksy. The event is finally opening to Australian audiences after its previous global success, and it’s pulling out all the stops. 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 in the world.
His imagery, at first glance seemingly simple and innocent, tackles big topics such as the absurdity of war, police brutality, social inequality, as well as political tensions, climate change, consumerism, human and animal rights issues, and the war in Ukraine.
In The Art of Banksy: “Without Limits” you will be able to view over 150 pieces that have been sourced and collected from around the world. These include his original art, prints on different kinds of materials, photos, sculptures, installations and murals. Some of his works have even been reproduced with his stencil technique, exclusively for the exhibition. It will definitely be worth the drive to Brisbane!
This museum-quality production will be unlike any art exhibition you have been to before, and the work of Banksy will keep you captivated throughout. The interior exhibits are divided into four main sections, The Infinity Room, Dismaland Experience, Murals, and Louis Michel: all major thematic works that have been created by Banksy. Each of these sections will give you detailed insight into Banksy’s motives for creating them, as well as their meaning and impact on audiences at the time.
This art experience will take you deep into the mind and world of Banksy. It will include video documentaries, audio guides and accompanying information that give viewers a deeper understanding and insight into his work and who he is as an artist – identity not included.
With tickets starting at $29, The Art Of Banksy: “Without Limits” is a rare opportunity for fans to appreciate such a complete collection of Banksy’s work. The exhibition has also included a group ticket option for groups of 20 to 50 people to purchase tickets at a discounted price.
If you’re on the Gold Coast, definitely consider taking a trip to Brisbane to see the exhibition of this world-renowned street artist. Take it from us: it’s well worth the journey!
