Show of original Banksys opens new Brussels gallery

15:47 25/02/2021

A new gallery is opening next month in Brussels, and the first show is made up of originals by legendary street artist Banksy. Deodato Art will open Banksy: The Brussels Show on 25 March.

The new gallery on Rue Saint-Jean near Mont des Arts is owned by Deodato Salafia, who already has three outlets in Italy and one in Switzerland. He specialises in street and pop art, offering original paintings, lithographs and screenprints by some of the most famous contemporary artists in the world, including Mr Brainwash, Damien Hirst, Keith Haring and, yes, Banksy. The gallery is also known for its strong online sales.

Banksy paints originals on paper or canvas and also in public space, his politically charged images dotting walls from Bristol to Calais to New Orleans and Bethlehem. He also often reproduces his street art on paper or canvas and then produces numerous prints of them.

Deodato Art will be showing originals on paper and canvas of some of the anonymous artist’s most famous works, including the triptych of ‘Rage, Flower Thrower’; ‘Love Rat’ and ‘No Ball Games’. The show will run for two months.
