Banksy to be featured at the RDS Art Source fair in November

The Bristol-based street artist will have a number of his original works included in the art fair from November 10th to 12th.

A series of screen prints, these works by Banksy are valued at €150,000 and will be shown by Gormleys Fine Art.

It is estimated that approximately 15,000 people will be in attendance at Art Source, which will also be giving a number of visitors the opportunity to buy 100 original works of art for €100 each on a first-come, first-served basis.

"There is massive interest in Banksy, his work is very eye catching and people tend to do a double take when they see you have an original by him on display," said Oliver Gormley.

Gormleys will have pieces on display ranging from €9,000 for 'Napalm' up to €150,000 for 'Heavy Weaponry'. Also being exhibited by Banksy are 'Flying C0pper', 'Girl With A Balloon' and 'Tesco Tomato Soup'.

"We get Banksy's work through an external company and each piece comes with a certificate of proof that it is an original piece by the artist," said Oliver.

The fair will also include work by over 130 artists, with 20 Irish and international galleries gathering to showcase painting, sculpture, photography, illustration, prints and ceramic art.

“Art Source offers visitors the opportunity to purchase a one-off affordable artwork to make their home unique and also the opportunity to meet the artists and hear about their work,” said show organiser Patrick O’Sullivan.

Art Source takes place at the RDS, Dublin, from November 10th to 12th. Admission is €10 for adults, €8 for OAPs and children under 16 are free if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Opening times:

Friday Nov 10: 11am-9pm
