Talking Culture: The Art Of Banksy

On Friday Culture Club headed to London’s bustling Covent Garden, to see the Art Of Banksy exhibition. As a household name artist we were excited to get to see some original and iconic pieces. The exhibition is in a warehouse in Covent Garden’s Seven Dias and took us on a journey through the years, with art dating back to 1997 up to 2008, a time period known as Banksy’s ‘golden age’. 

The Art Of Baksy

We saw instantly recognisable pieces such as ‘Girl With Balloon’, ‘Flower Thrower’ and ‘Rude Copper’, as well as many pieces we had never come across before. Chatting afterwards some of us agreed that we had no idea he was so humorous, with some of the work making us laugh out loud. We particularly liked reading about and viewing some of his controversial public stunts, such as the shredding of a painting at auction, and defacing pound notes.

Following the exhibition we ventured into Seven Dials market for a drink. We were so impressed by the array of different food stalls on offer, particularly the cheese bar upstairs.. There’s a lot of cheese fans at Talking Tables!

Some of our own product are inspired by artists and art forms. For example our Escape Room London Game has elements inspired by graffiti seen across the city.
