Andipa Gallery is hosting a Banksy / War Boutique exhibition , presenting a collection of original works by two mavericks of urban art – one just emerging onto the international stage, choosing to put on his first commercial exhibition at Andipa, and one already recognised as amongst the biggest names in contemporary art today.
The show includes an unparalleled collection of sought after original paintings by Banksy, from the collection of Andipa Gallery, in the ground floor gallery.
New works by War Boutique are on show in the lower ground floor gallery.
Using textiles, bullet proof ceramics, shells and bomb blankets as the conduit to express his ideas, the artist known as War Boutique “symbolically transforms instruments of war and destruction into constructive items embodying creativity, peace and critical social commentary.” Society for Contemporary Craft.
