Moco Museum offers a collection of some of Banksy’s most iconic works. Laugh Now, Barcode, Girl with Balloon, Kids on Guns, Love is in the Air (Flower Thrower), Kate Moss, Rude Copper, Crude Oil series, and many more. The centerpiece of the exhibition is Beanfield, which measures 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 emphasizes his activist nature.
The Laugh Now exhibition is not authorized by Banksy. Each artwork is made by Banksy, further validated by Pest Control with a certificate of authenticity. Furthermore, Pest Control is the only official body that can authenticate the anonymous street artist’s works.
Banksy is ultimately world-renowned for his outdoor art – street art. From large-scale murals to quiet, emotional pieces like Girl with Balloon. Banksy’s art can be found in streets all around the world. Interestingly, London has maps that mark the locations of such pieces. However, many of those places are monitored against vandalism. Banksy’s indoor pieces, which include original and unique works on canvas, wood, and paper have been much less exposed.
But now, you can and will find these rare artworks at Moco Museum in Amsterdam.
