Banksy is in Dubai... sort of.
If you’re as obsessed with Banksy as I am then you’ll be frothing at the bit to check out his exhibition entitled “The World of Banksy” between now and the 30 June at The Theatre at the Mall of Emirates. Tickets are available on Platinum list and although there is a steady stream of people arriving there isn’t really a queue in the evenings so I wouldn’t worry too much about purchasing the VIP skipping queue option.
The exhibition itself features recreations of 120 of his works in one venue so its all the icons and some reminders from way back to rekindle your admiration and respect of this mysterious character. There are also some of his lesser known works which will also give you something to think about. I’ve posted some of my snaps of the exhibition below and in case you are like me and wondered how they managed to reach out to Banksy to even get his permission to organise the event?? I asked the events team this very question during my visit and apparently they dropped him a DM on Instagram. Imagine that, sliding into Banksy’s DM’s and getting a reply. Wild.
