LionelGallery in Amsterdam shows work from famous street artist Banksy for a month
Ten original artworks by Banksy are on view.

AMSTERDAM.- Presenting more than ten original artworks and all limited prints the artist has made, Amsterdam's LionelGallery organises the most elaborate art sale exhibition of British Street Artist Banksy ever in the Netherlands. Masterpiece is the enormous painting 'Forgive Us Our Trespassing', measuring 122 by 244 centimetres, Banksy used for the promotion of his DVD 'Exit Through the Gift Shop' in Oxford Street in London in 2010.

During the Banksy exhibition 'Keep it Real', from June 20th until July 20th, art collectors from all over Europe, China, the US and the Middle-East will fly to Amsterdam to admire the work of this 'modern Picasso'. Banksy is called the king of Street Art, like Andy Warhol was of Pop Art. In the past ten months he has taken first place on the world's largest art search engine, leaving famous artists like Rembrandt, Picasso, Warhol and Van Gogh far behind. The art world began to gain a huge interest, after the Banksy exhibition at Sotheby's in London, six months ago.

Lionel and Kim from LionelGallery, successful with iconic artists like Picasso, Koons, Hirst or Basquiat, are selling Banksy's every week to people from all over the world. Their curator's eye brings an uplifting collection together with the highest quality contemporary art. Young collectors having their first‚ real art or A-listers from Hollywood; they all stop in Amsterdam to find art works. According to LionelGallery now is the time to organise the largest Banksy show ever in the Netherlands.

Banksy's politically engaged and satirical Street Art combines humour with graffiti, executed in a distinctive stencilling technique. His works have been featured in cities throughout the world, even in controversial areas like Gaza. His various pr-stunts draw a lot of attention.

"Some Street Artists are getting really big and can be called the Picassos of their time," Kim Logchies of LionelGallery says. "A few of them have drawn the attention of auction houses and top galleries, a fine example of how the old art world meets the new one."
