'War, Capitalism & Liberty' is now showing at the Palazzo Cipolla Museum in heart of Rome, Italy. Co-curated by Acoris Andipa with 999 Contemporary, most artworks come from private collections that Andipa has sold to over the years.
Think about it...'War, Capitalism & Liberty' is an independent not-for-profit education based museum exhibition exploring social and political themes suggested by Banksy's artworks.
Banksy's 'Girl With Red Balloon', is one of his most iconic works, here on display in different formats and versions he's done over the years.
