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.
