MoCo Museum: Banksy Laugh Now

His face may not be known to the public but his work has spoken volumes. Graffiti Artist Banksy first emerged into the underground scene in the late 90s with his unconventional stencil work painted all over London and Bristol. In 2010, he joined the likes of Barack Obama and Lady Gaga in Time’s 100 most influential people despite his anonymity.

Banksy uses political satire and humor as a basis for his craft. He allowed his work to be the voice rather than having to explain himself to the world. And though we may never know the man behind the canvas, the mystery beneath only draws us closer to his art.

The MoCo Museum, located in the heart of Amsterdam, has a permanent display of Banksy’s work over the years as well as temporary expositions of other contemporary artists.
