Banksy is a pseudonymous England-based street artist, political activist, and film director whose real name and identity remain unconfirmed and the subject of speculation.
All the works on display until 22 May 2021 are certified by Pest Control — the lone verification authority recognised by the artist.
Around 6,000 individuals have already registered to visit the exclusive show.
Deodato Salafia, the 51-year-old gallery owner and a Banksy collector, opened his gallery in November, a couple of days before the Covid-19 lockdown. He said, “It’s not a matter of lockdown or not, it’s a matter for the art galleries to understand that selling art and having people enjoy and buy art is no different than selling or buying shoes or other stuff.”
The computer scientist conceded that finding so many Banksy pieces was a hard assignment as a large portion of his pieces are normally separated. The beginning cost of the work of art at the exhibition is around £36,300, and some of the pieces on display are “Donuts Strawberry”, “The Flower Thrower”, and “Love Rat” amongst others.
Due to Covid-19, entrance is allowed with online reservation only, and the waiting list can be joined here.
Earlier this week, the artist’s painting called “Game Changer,” of a kid playing with a toy nurse as a superhero, an accolade for the NHS staff, sold for more than £14 million in London.
