THE ART OF BANKSY

An enigma and a legend, the elusive street artist Banksy is known around the world for his thought-provoking, surprise installations. Whether it’s in London, Amsterdam or Boston, his often satirical works pop up when least expected – ready to question the status quo, sometimes with a sting but more often with a humorous wink.

Now you can admire the most extensive collection of this iconic artist ever compiled in the Netherlands. Curated by Banksy’s former agent and gallery owner, Steve Lazarides, the Amsterdam gallery Beurs van Berlage features 85 works in a show that runs from June 18 through September 30.

At the opening night of the exhibit, Warsteiner celebrated this fascinating artist by hosting the kick-off party complete with our premium beers and attentive waitstaff to the delight of the many guests. In the coming months, a Warsteiner bar will be present during the various ART OF BANKSY nights. And since no one knows the identity of this mysterious Banksy, you could be standing right next to him… or her?

Our commitment to the arts and our support of cutting-edge creative minds has been a passion for the Warsteiner Brewery for decades. Whether it’s Andy Warhol’s silk screens of our tulip glass, our Warsteiner Art Collection or the ground-breaking BLOOOM Award by Warsteiner, the brewery has gained an international reputation for celebrating the arts and supporting young creative minds.
