  • The Event: Suspected to be named Banksy Universe, details remain scarce. There’s no official confirmation on dates, exhibits, or even Banksy’s direct involvement.
  • The Artist: Banksy is a world-renowned anonymous street artist known for his thought-provoking and often anti-establishment works. Pieces like “Girl with Balloon” (which famously self-destructed during an auction) have cemented his place in pop culture.
  • Banksy’s Participation: Here’s the wrinkle. Banksy’s official agency, Pest Control Office, typically distances itself from international exhibitions of his work.

So, is it a real Banksy exhibit?

The big question remains: Will Banksy Universe showcase authentic Banksy pieces or serve as an exhibition inspired by his work? The Metropolitan Museum and Banksy himself haven’t provided any further clarification.

Despite the lack of details, the teaser has ignited excitement among art enthusiasts in the Philippines. The prospect of a Banksy-related event, even if unofficial, is a major draw.
