Banksy - Laugh Now exhibition

Moco Museum Amsterdam

Banksy in Amsterdam at Moco Museum

Anonymous. British. Street art. Need we say more? Banksy is one of the most influential artists of our time. Next to that, the elusive street artist has developed an incredible, recognized body of work that carries a political punch! The street artist and activist uses satire and dark humor to unpack topics like anti-war, anti-authority, and environmental and socio-political issues.

As a result, Banksy’s heavy impact on this world unites humans and art lovers - as the street artist’s work connects our collective consciousness. Banksy is a living example that art can change the world.

“If you get tired, learn to rest, not to quit.” – Banksy

Beanfield

One of the cornerstone pieces of the exhibition is Beanfield, measuring 2.5 x 3.5 metres. Although it has not been displayed since 2009, Beanfield remains an important work in the street artist’s oeuvre, as it encapsulates the artist's signature, activist spirit.

“Graffiti is just a form of protest art and it has more truth than most of what’s going on in the art world.” – Banksy

Ultimately, Banksy is renowned for his street art. From large-scale murals to quiet, emotional pieces like Girl with Balloon - on view at Moco Museum Amsterdam. Banksy’s art can be found in streets and museums all around the world.


“Be positive, patient, and persistent.” – Banksy


Banksy uses monkeys to remark on what's hilarious and hypocritical about being human. Perhaps monkeys parallel Banksy's rising journey as a street artist - from alleyways to museums? Before, his art was regarded as nothing more than vandalism with style in a world where there were rules, boundaries, and strict definitions of art. Now, street art has arrived and Banksy is the most regarded street artist in the world.

So who's laughing now?
