Banksy street murals recreated in Milan’s main train station


Travelers at Milan’s main train station will this week be able to take a break from reproductions of murals by the elusive street artist Banksy.

“The Word of Banksy — The Immersive Experience” opens Friday in the Mosaic Gallery, at the train tracks of Milan’s monumental Central Station.

It features reproductions of some of Banksy’s best-known pieces, such as “Nola”, created in 2008 out of sympathy for the people of hurricane-stricken New Orleans.

Banksy’s street art has been recreated by young European artists and installed on backgrounds that mimic their original street surroundings.

New works reproduced include “Aachoo!!”, depicting a maskless woman sneezing and knocking off her dentures, and “Steve Jobs”, which Banksy painted on a wall at the entrance to the Calais migrant camp hoping to join the England.

The exhibition follows a previous Milan exhibition which later traveled to Paris, Barcelona, ​​Prague, Brussels and Dubai.

It is open until February 27.

The exhibition is not permitted, but the curator notes that it has also not been challenged so far.
