Sala degli Stemmi
The World of Banksy
The Bristol-based artist has conquered Turin with the exhibition at the Sala degli Stemmi inside the Torino Porta Nuova Station – the “gateway” to the city par excellence that welcomes thousands of visitors and travellers every day. The “World of Banksy” immersive exhibition features more than 30 new works never exhibited before, including “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, famous for tackling political and social issues with irony.
This is the second stop in Italy – after Milan and Verona – of a long journey for Banksy, who is going from station to station across Europe and beyond (Paris, Barcelona, Prague, Brussels and Dubai). The aim is to convey his message through his works, which offer both a touch of art and food for thought.
