Herald Sun - - NEWS -

BANKSY has been Banksied.

The guer­rilla artist, who puts up his work in pub­lic spa­ces without ask­ing au­tho­ri­sa­tion, is the sub­ject of a new show in Madrid fea­tur­ing his works, without his ap­proval.

“Ge­nius or Van­dal?” opened Thurs­day and will run un­til March 10. It has pulled in 500,000 vis­i­tors at venues in Moscow and St Peters­burg.

The show’s cu­ra­tor, Alexan­der Nachke­biya, who as­sem­bled the works from pri­vate col­lec­tors, de­scribes Banksy as “a phenomenon and one of the most bril­liant and im­por­tant artists of our epoch”.
