The exhibition is a combined Banksy/Warhol collection that mixes two giants in the modern art world and is certainly an interesting mix of styles.

  • Banksy: Laugh Now runs from 9th April until September 4th 2016
  • Warhol: Royal runs from April 9th until July 3rd 2016

There will be around 80 works on display from pop art genius Warhol and contemporary street artist Banksy including the giant 3x4m centerpiece “Greenfields Beans” and Warhol’s Marylin.
