The best London art exhibitions to see this week
From Banksy's greatest hits to a glorious outdoor sculpture garden in Regent's Park, it's a big week in London art
Think of Banksy and his illicit, politically subversive street art epigrams spring to mind. But the anonymous British artist is also the proud creator of a vast number of painterly oils, sculptures and stenciled canvases.
A major new exhibition at Lazinc Gallery in Mayfair showcases a diverse cross-section of Banksy's most celebrated works created between 2002 and 2008. With all works drawn from prestigious private collections, and many never previously exhibited in public, this phenomenal exhibition reveals the great breath and artistic innovation of one of Britain's most popular living artists.Read more ...
A collection of glorious mixed-media sculptures by British artist Anna Masters currently garnish the Lobby and bar area of swanky 45 Park Lane. Thanks to her innovative use of perspex, Masters' suspended butterfly and sequin encrusted works, also known as Dreamscapes, appear to float in mid air.
Created by hand using a range of organic, recycled and found materials, Masters' sculptural works showcase her profound love of surface, texture and symbolism. While a luxury hotel may not seem the most likely spot to drink in accessible art, 45 Park Lane is committed to staging free exhibitions open to everyone.
