Calling all art lovers! The popular Banksy Universe exhibition is coming to Manila. First announced in April, the revolutionary exhibit will be displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Manila (The M) in Bonifacio Global City (BGC) starting May 14 and will run until Nov. 30

Organized by the museum and the Banksy Universe Collective, the immersive exhibit will center around the anonymous artist’s works. The exhibit will feature recreations of the artist’s famous “anti-authoritarian art” sprayed in public – allowing fans and museum visitors to see Banksy pieces from the US, UK, and Palestine.

Banksy is a pseudonym used by an England-based street artist and activist who creates political and social messages with graffiti, stenciled pieces, and art installations. The artist’s identity was never confirmed and is still a subject of speculation among art lovers.

A disclaimer though, although the upcoming exhibit is not a Banksy-authorized show, the organizers aim to bring the genius masterpieces to the Filipino audience. Since he creates his murals in various parts of the world, bringing all his original artworks to Manila is impossible – which is why they opt to enlist the help of artists who reproduced Banky's artworks to let us experience them in real life.

The regular all-day access pass is priced at P550. Senior citizens and persons with disabilities can get a discounted price of P440, while students can book at P275. To enter the exhibit, a registration is required through this link.

Location: Metropolitan Museum of Manila, MK Tan Centre 30th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City
