Extended due to high demand: "The Mystery of Banksy" in Vienna! The exhibition about the British street art superstar remains until March 19 in Studio F of the Wiener Stadthalle.

After the great public successes in Linz, Graz, Berlin and Hamburg, among others, the exhibition is now also turning out to be an absolute visitor magnet in Vienna: "The Mystery of Banksy - A Genius Mind" is on everyone's lips and is also exceeding all expectations here! With almost 1.2 million visitors since the world premiere in March 2021 in Munich, it is one of the most popular and globally successful exhibitions about the street art superstar. Due to this huge demand, the runtime of "The Mystery of Banksy" in Studio F of the Wiener Stadthalle is now extended until 19th March 2023!

The exhibition thereby shows an unprecedented presentation with more than 150 works of the celebrated street art superstar: graffiti, photographs, sculptures, video installations and prints on various materials such as canvas, fabric, aluminum, forex and plexiglass have been reproduced and assembled especially for this special show.

"The Mystery of Banksy - A Genius Mind" gives visitors a comprehensive overview and insight into the complete works of the genius and exceptional artist in an elaborate and unique setting. True to Banksy's motto "Copyright is for losers ©TM", this homage and the works shown there are not authorized by the artist due to his anonymous status.

Who is Banksy?
When it comes to street art, there's no getting around him: Banksy, probably the most famous and also the most mysterious graffiti artist in the world. According to estimates, the 45-50-year-old Briton has successfully kept his identity a secret. His works, on the other hand, are conquering not only the streets internationally, but also the auction houses, and with great success: he is currently considered one of the most expensive artists of our time! Banksy is an underground fighter, hotel operator and without doubt the undisputed king of street art, a brilliant mind and star artist who touches people and speaks to them from the soul with his sometimes ironic, sometimes political, but always poetic works. When the city of Bristol asked its citizens in 2009 to vote on whether Banksy's works should be removed from the cityscape, 97 percent decided against it. A clear vote for his art. Banksy is a star far beyond the borders of the art market. Back in 2010, Time Magazine put him on its list of the 100 most influential people in the world for the first time, alongside personalities such as Barack Obama, Steve Jobs and Lady Gaga.  

To this day, no one knows who Banksy is or what his real name is, but everyone knows his pictures, which appear overnight on the walls of cities everywhere and sometimes make provocative comments on world events. In the meantime, the phantom of the art world has long since written art history. Millions of people, including those with less of an affinity for art in the classical sense, know and admire his motifs. It is especially his most recent works, such as the painting "Game Changer" dedicated to the hospital staff in Southampton or his guerrilla action with the rats in the London Underground, which have become famous worldwide, that have recently made him increasingly popular. Many of his pictures have also found their way into commercial everyday life.
