Stazione Porta Nuova
The Bristol-based artist Bansky conquers Verona with a new exhibition at the Porta Nuova Station, the “gateway” to the city par excellence that welcomes thousands of visitors and travellers every day. The exhibition was organised also to mark the 170th anniversary of the arrival of the first train.
“The World of Banksy-The Immersive Experience” exhibition features more than 30 new works never exhibited before, life-size murals created by young international and local street artists. The exhibition includes “Flower Thrower”, “Steve Jobs”, “Girl With Baloon” and “Waiting In Vain”, in addition to works and murals created by anonymous young artists from all over Europe. In total, more than 130 works are on display, revealing the world of the mysterious British artist, who is famous for tackling political and social issues with irony.
Banksy’s works are travelling at high speed on the tracks of Italy’s most important stations: they left in December from Milano Centrale, have already arrived in Torino Porta Nuova and now in Verona Porta Nuova, with the aim of reaching the whole of Italy to spread the message of the Bristol artist who, through his art, offers food for thought. Banksy is going from station to station also across Europe and beyond (Paris, Barcelona, Prague, Brussels and Dubai).
