'World's largest' Banksy exhibition is coming to Mall of the Emirates in Dubai

People in the UAE will be able to view 120 original artworks by the mysterious British street artist

Fans of the world-renowned street artist Banksy will soon be able to see his most famous artworks in the UAE.

An internationally touring Banksy exhibition is coming to Mall of the Emirates and will be on display at The Theatre from Monday until June 30, although these dates are subject to change.

On display will be 120 original artworks brought to Dubai by The World of Banksy – The Immersive Experience, in what organisers claim is the largest Banksy exhibition on the planet.

Visitors will be able to view official reproductions of some of Banksy’s most inspirational creations, including frames and murals such as Girl with a Balloon, Flower Thrower and Mobile Lovers.

Take a look through the photo gallery above to see more of Banksy's most famous works.

The exhibit will be open to the public, with tickets costing Dh75 for adults and Dh45 for those under the age of 12. There will also be a Dh110 VIP ticket that allows for queue-jumping and another VVIP pass, with a guide on demand, is in the works, but the price is yet to be confirmed.

It has also been said that The Art of Banksy is the world’s largest touring exhibition of the mysterious street artist's work, with more than 110 original works, prints on different kinds of materials, photos, sculptures and more.

The artist himself is not affiliated with either of the exhibitions.

Banksy may be one of the art world’s most famous names, but his identity remains unknown. The street artist, whose thought-provoking and political works have appeared across the globe, has maintained anonymity despite years of making headlines, thanks to a combination of careful planning and a trusted inner circle.
