“Banksy is one of the most famous street artists in the world, and we are delighted to present his works to art lovers in Taiwan. Following the booming art scene in Taiwan since last year which captures the world’s attention, we would like to present this rare exhibition to Taiwanese collectors.”, Cindy Yen, the General Manager of Philips Taiwan reported.

Banksy was born in Britain in 1975 and has successfully maintained their anonymity despite becoming the world’s most famous contemporary street artist.

There is speculation that the artist may be a collective of artists, rather than an individual. The artist’s prints must be authenticated by Banksy’s official committee called “Pest Control.”
