The World of Banksy: immersive Banksy experience at Paris Espace Lafayette-Drouot

The Espace Lafayette-Drouot in Paris is welcoming an unique installation: “The World of Banksy: The Immersive Experience”. Devoted to the world-famous street artist, this exhibition will reveal from June 13 to July 31, 2019 about 100 works on 1200sqm.

After welcoming the “The fans strike back” exhibition devoted to the Star Wars universe, the Espace Lafayette-Drouot once again features a sensational and immersive exhibition. This installation takes us on a very beautiful journey with Banksy, the street master through a presentation of 100 works unveiled on 1200sqm and running from June 13 to July 31, 2019. A true happiness for street art fans!

Since his debuts, Banksy is fascinating and creates striking works as beautiful as committed also because of his mysterious aspect. World-famous street artist, no one knows who hides behind this pseudonym even though many people try to uncover his secret.

Today, thousands of people want to see and take pictures of the artist’s countless mural paintings scattered across the world. From London to New York without forgetting ParisBanksy is everywhere!

From June 13 to July 31, 2019, another venue in Paris pays interest in the street-artist by proposing the “The World of Banksy – The Immersive Experience” event.

The experience starts in the lowest part of the space with some Banksy works from private collections. For instance, we have "Gangsta Rat" as well as "Consumer Jesus" and "Toxic Mary" cleverly twisting religion.

Upstairs, we have the unmissable "Kissing Coppers" illustrating the famous kiss between two British policemen as well as "Turf War" where Winston Churchill is turned into a punk icon with a green Mohawk.

Then, more impressive mural reproductions of Banksy made here by a dozen street artists from all over the world. The latter worked for a month day and night to recreate these fantastic (real size) murals in the different corners of the Espace Lafayette-Drouot!

Then, we travel to New York with "Waiting in Vain" and "The street is in play", then to London with "No Ball Game" and "Slave Labour', iwthout forgetting Paris with the little girl covering a swastika as well as the work made on the Bataclan doors following the tragic terror attacks in 2015.

We also loved the reproductions of several Banksy works in Bethleem and the famous Walled Off Hotel open in 2017 a few steps from the wall.
