    BANKSY WORKS ON SHOW IN DUBLIN

    Friday, November 3rd, 2017

    Banksy – Girl with Balloon

    Works by Banksy, the world famous anonymous British street artist, are set to wow the crowd at Art Source, the Irish art fair which runs at the RDS from November 10-12.  Gormleys Fine Art will show a selection of screen prints including  Banksy’s iconic Flying Copper image of a policeman, Girl With A Balloon and his Tesco Tomato Soup can parody on the work by Andy Warhol.  “We get Banksy‘s work through an external company and each piece comes with a certificate of proof that it is an original piece by the artist,” Oliver Gormley explained.  “There is massive interest in Banksy, his work is very eye catching and people tend to do a double take when they see you have an original by him on display,” he added.  Prices for the pieces on display range from 9,000 for Napalm up to 150,000 for Heavy Weaponry.

    More than 130 contemporary artists and 20 Irish and international galleries will gather together to showcase painting, sculpture, photography, illustration, prints and ceramic art at Art Source.  More than 15,000 people are expected to attend.
