BANKSYLAND arrives in Houston on August 19 and 20


If you know art, you know Banksy. Infamous for his stenciled graffiti and controversial hijinks, the anonymous artist has become known for his cynical artworks critiquing militarism, consumerism and greed. From shredding his painting at auction to creating a dystopian parody of DisneylandBanksy has made a name for himself as one of the most prolific street performers of all time, all without ever revealing his true identity.

And while your chances of seeing Banksy himself in Houston are still slim, that’s no longer the case for his art. Banksy-themed exhibit BANKSYLAND will be appearing in H-Town this weekend, so Houstonians can finally get closer to his most iconic works.

Created by international art collective One Thousand Ways, the unauthorized exhibition aims to immerse visitors in a multimedia art experience that examines the cultural impact of Banksy. It features more than 80 collected works from private collections around the world, including signed studio pieces, original paintings, salvaged street art, and never-before-seen installations.

BANKSYLAND Houston will be presented at Space HTX on August 19 and 20. Fans can purchase general admission tickets for $29 or $22 with a valid student ID. For the ultimate experience, art lovers should purchase VIP Experience tickets for $59, which will include all-day access rather than the one-hour general admission rate time slot, a poster of limited edition exhibition and an audio tour of the exhibition.
