A new show by Banksy has recently opened in Glasgow, revealing for the first time the stencils used to create many of the artist’s most iconic works. Spanning from 1998 to the present day, the artist calls it ‘25 years card labour.’

The artist said, “I’ve kept these stencils hidden away for years, mindful they could be used as evidence in a charge of criminal damage. But that moment seems to have passed, so now I’m exhibiting them in a gallery as works of art. I’m not sure which is the greater crime.”

The show includes authentic artefacts, ephemera and the artist’s actual toilet. Staged at Glasgow’s GoMA, the exhibition will run for three months and stay open all night at weekends. The show may tour, depending on the demand.

Banksy said, “While the unauthorised Banksy shows might look like sweepings from my studio floor, CUT & RUN really is the actual sweepings from my studio floor.”
