‘THE ART OF BANKSY” has traveled to Melbourne, Tel Aviv, Amsterdam and Auckland. Now the exhibition lands in TORONTO on June 13 for one month.
The venue – a two-storey former industrial building at 213 Sterling Road. For tickets go to http://www.banksyexhibit.com
The mysterious BANKSY, activist and filmmaker, has been in TORONTO at least once. While here promoting ‘Exit Through The Gift Shop’ in 2010, he created several pieces of art on city streets and alleys. Some were tagged or unknowingly painted over. A few survived, and one in particular is now under glass in a downtown office building. <PHOTOS – Haunted Walk.com>
