Banksy is a world renowned artist whose identity remains anonymous. The art world was shocked in October when someone bought his “Girl With Balloon” for $1.4 million at Sotheby’s Auction House in London and then, upon purchase, the painting destroyed itself with a shredder built into the frame of the painting. Now, Banksy’s former manager Steve Lazarides has brought a controversial unauthorized exhibit to Miami called “The Art of Banksy.” Although Miami Art Week might be over, the exhibit is sticking around until Feb. 28. Lazarides joined Sundial to address concerns regarding the Bansky exhibit.
