Local galleries featuring work from famous streeters
Banksy, or at least his prolific body of original artwork, comes to town.
Some of the art on offer at Liss Gallery in Yorkville is from none other than famous street artist Mr. Brainwash. Limited edition silk screens are available including Zeppelin (pictured), Queen and Big Ben. Biggie is already sold, unfortunately. Prices range from $1,000 to $6,000. 112 Cumberland St.
The mystery artist’s works can be seen on streets all over the world, including Toronto. Of the seven pieces Banksy tagged here, only one near Church Street and the Esplanade remains visible. Menkes Developments saved another before tearing down a building at 90 Harbour St. and it is now displayed at 1 York St. in the PATH.
Gallery owner Andrew Bockner recently set up shop in the Annex. The gallery’s walls are lined with loads of urban, street and pop art (including works by Warhol!). Pieces by famous street artists Mr. Brainwash and Pixel are also available at this spot. 365 Dupont St.
