Banksy, whose identity remains a mystery, is a painter, graffiti artist, and social activist, considered one of the world's top political artists.

Steve Lazarides previously worked with Banksy for 11 years, specifically as the elusive artist's personal photographer and gallerist.

"To be honest this isn't a Banksy exhibition, it is an exhibition of Banksy's art and I think there's a big difference between the two", he said.

Additionally, this presentation will be the first United Kingdom exhibition which allows visitors to see Banksy's work all in one place, from stenciled canvases, unique paintings, limited-edition prints, and many more, which emphasize the artist's social and political comments in today's world.
