(ATLANTA, Ga.) A new art exhibition is now on display in Atlanta.

“The Art of Banksy” opened on Sept. 3 and features over 140 pieces on display at Underground Atlanta. Banksy is known for his mysterious street art.

Residents and visitors in Atlanta can view some of Bansky’s most valuable pieces from his collection up close and personal. The exhibit hosts some of his original art, prints on different kinds of materials, photos, sculptures, and much more. Some of his works have even been reproduced with his stencil technique, especially for the occasion.

The artist is known to express strong political statements throughout his art with poetry, humor and energy. Along with physical pieces of art, the display will also include an in-depth video that explains his life story.

So far, the exhibition has had great success overseas across Europe and Australia and is in Atlanta for a limited time. The display was originally set to take palace at the Westside Cultural Arts Center but moved to Underground Atlanta by popular demand.

“We decided to relocate to Underground Atlanta from Westside Cultural Arts Center so that more fans will have access to the artists’ works in a larger presentation space with more parking and public transportation options,” said Martin Biallas, CEO of SEE Global Entertainment.

Tickets to The Art of Banksy: “Without Limits” exhibition are still on sale. Tickets are $29.20 for adults and $19.50 for children. You can also purchase a family ticket or make it extra special with their VIP package, which includes entry to the exhibition with skip-the-line access and a poster.
