Hey, did you make it to Dismaland? Neither did I, but here’s an exhibit you can see to help assuage your pain. Better In Than Out presents a comprehensive exhibition of Banksy’s artwork spanning a full decade. The  exhibition  includes works on paper, unique paintings and an original graffiti wall; including approximately 50 works beginning with an early-career canvas painting created in 2000 and rounded out by prints published in 2010. Most of these pieces we have seen before, but that’s what makes them classics! This showing of Bansky works celebrates the two-year anniversary of Banksy’s month-long residency in New York City.

Banksy has become synonymous with street art; legendary through controversy and mystique, the proverbial masked man has been prodding authority for over a decade while simultaneously inciting a palpable intrigue from the masses. By conveying his simple yet powerful messages, Banksy’s imagery from the streets has become iconography of today’s pop culture.

Whether his subjects are that of social commentary, sarcasm, anti-establishment, mock-propaganda or a call for governmental anarchy, Banksy seems to capture an audience from all backgrounds regardless of sex, race, nationality, or economic status. Although nothing is safe from his wrath, it is safe to say that Banksy has propelled a unique following and market unlike any in the art world.
