The blockbuster exhibition about the street art superstar.

He is world-famous and yet a mystery - Banksy, the Bristol-born and to this day anonymous graffiti artist and painter who is known for challenging the boundaries of the art market and who has been causing a furore with his works for years. Since its world premiere in Munich in March 2021, hundreds of thousands of visitors have now seen the exhibition on the exceptional artist, making it the most publicised and successful show on the street art superstar worldwide. "The Mystery of Banksy - A Genius Mind" has already been shown in Austria with great success in Linz and Graz and is now coming to Vienna for the first time! 

On display are 150 works by the celebrated street art superstar: graffiti, photographs, sculptures, video installations and prints on various materials such as canvas, fabric, aluminium, forex and Plexiglas have been reproduced and brought together especially for this special show. The whole thing is rounded off by an exciting video documentary that illuminates the most important stages of a playless career.

In a lavish and unique setting, "The Mystery of Banksy - A Genius Mind" gives visitors a comprehensive overview and insight into the complete works of this genius and exceptional artist. In keeping with Banksy's motto "Copyright is for losers ©TM", this homage is also not officially authorised 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.
