Banksy exhibition @ The Andipa Gallery in London

Last Saturday, I was lucky enough to catch the final day of the Banksy exhibit at The Andipa Gallery over here in South Kensington, London. It was definitely worth queueing in the rain (twice!) as I am a huge Banksy fan.

I must admit it was weird seeing his artwork on the gallery walls as opposed to say, the wall by Chalk Farm Station (or street side on Beverly for all you LA readers). The gallery was so small that there we literally had to file through in a single line whilst doing a circuit, waiting for everyone to take photos of each and every piece (including me!) However, the fun did not end there, as we were encouraged to walk to the other location of the Andipa Gallery down the street, for a display of his screen prints, where if you had a spare £7,500 (approx. $15,000) you could pick up the cheapest print on display!

One of my favourites had to be the biggest painting on display, ironically titled "Painting Everyone Always Says They Want to Buy but No one Does (Sharks)":

Check out the slideshow below for the rest of the artwork on display:
