Co-founder of London’s Lazinc gallery, Steve Lazarides, is making preparations to launch a monumental show spotlighting a unique selection of Banksy‘s artworks. Entitled “Banksy, Greatest Hits: 2002-2008,” the extensive presentation will display six years’ worth of stenciled canvases, paintings, sculptures, and limited-edition prints by the Bristol-born street artist. Highlights include Love Is In The Air (2006), Girl and Balloon (2006), Show Me the Monet (2005).

The show is a most-intimate one for Lazarides who was Banksy’s personal photographer and gallerist for 11 years. He first met the elusive artist in 1997, having captured his portrait for one of London’s cult-favorite style magazines, Sleazenation. “Banksy has made himself the artist of the people. He belongs to the people – his popularity is because of them,” said Lazarides. “It’s our mission to show all elements of his work externally and give the public the opportunity to experience it when museums and galleries won’t.”

View select artworks above and expect the exhibition to launch to the public at Lazinc Sackville starting July 12. In related news, Banksy is showing a new piece at the Royal Academy of Arts Summer 2018 exhibition.
