Stealing Banksy: 20 ‘unseen’ works to go on show

Posted at 10:15 am, April 21, 2014 in Arts & Entertainment, Photos of London

Calling all street art fans. The ME London hotel is set to host the new ‘Stealing Banksy?’ exhibition – the most expensive collection of Banksy artworks ever displayed together. Open to the public from April 24, it also includes a live auction on April 27 where you can take home your own piece of iconic art – if you can afford it. ‘No Ball Games’, the most expensive Banksy restoration, is expected to sell for £1 million, with the money donated to local charities.

Fabio Gallo, General Manager at ME London, says that the show is a ‘one-off chance for Londoners to see 20 pieces that have never been displayed to the public before.’ While that may not strictly be the case (they were created on the street, after all), it’s certainly the first time they’ll have been displayed together in the same place. Tickets cost a hefty £17.50, but this does include a donation to charity. Francesca Leung
