With over 250 pieces of contemporary art displayed across three exhibitions at Moyse’s Hall Museum, National Horse Racing Museum and Haverhill Arts Centre, this summer's Urban Frame: Mutiny in Colour exhibition will be one of the biggest contemporary art exhibitions in the UK, this year.
All three exhibitions will host works from Banksy, Blek le Rat, My Dog Sighs, Grayson Perry, Pure Evil, Kaws, the Connor Brothers, Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Sherlock, Swoon, Ben Eine, Bambi, Hush, Lamont White and many more!
Below, we profile one of the artists, Banksy:
Originally from Bristol and starting as a graffiti artist, he is now one of the most famous artists of our time, causing a global buzz. His work spans major cities in this country and across the world, including Suffolk. Never afraid to tackle contemporary sensitive issues from wars to religion and the use of cult image. He is without doubt a brilliant marketer. Maintaining his anonymity enhances the intrigue around his work.
His work has pushed an underground culture out of the shadows, with Banksy’s own pieces frequently selling in auction houses for eight figure sums.
We are fortunate enough to have many original Banksy pieces of all sizes in the Urban Frame: Mutiny in Colour exhibition, including Sandcastle Girl, a wall piece he created in Lowestoft, as part of his Great British Spraycation in 2021 – and has never been exhibited before!
