Description

Calling all street art lovers - this one is for you ;)


Join Jo as she sits down with art historian, broadcaster and writer Verity Babbs as she speaks about the British super star that is BANKSY!!


A prolific street artist and lets be honest - total enigma, Banksy has in recent years re-written the rules for street artists all over the world. Verity, talks us through 5 of the artist’s most iconic works; not only pointing out their importance within the history of art but their powerful messages within.


Banksy is an artist banging the drum for social change, art for all and more importantly, sticking the middle finger up to those deserving of being brought down a peg or two.


We talk boats, theme parks and shopping trollies in Monet’s famous Lilly pond!.


A great episode not to be missed!
