€6 – €11

“Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.”

You’ve probably heard of him. Maybe you can even name one of his pieces. Or at least describe one.
Only time will tell whether what he did for art (especially graffiti) is good or bad. But his genius is undeniable, in our humble opinion.
Photographer Barry Cawston has heard of Banksy. Moreover, he has spent a good deal of time photographing the elusive weirdo’s work. And now he brings 44 of these photos to Porto.

Here’s the word on the street:
“This is a powerful demonstration that takes us on a journey through the phenomenal work of an artist who has been using his art for more than 25 years to question the values ​​of society and that now comes, and for the first time, to Portugal. The exhibition, which features 44 large photographs (240 x 188), includes images from the project Dismaland (along with a few now infamous earlier pieces).
In addition to the photographs by Barry Cawston, the exhibition will also integrate a series of works by young Portuguese artists, also serving as a launching pad for new names in the universe of urban art.”
