Banksy at the Royal Academy of Arts. 11 June 2018.

Banksy made it into the Royal Academy of Arts with a piece on Brexit referendum. The Royal Academy of Arts (RA) is currently celebrating its 250th anniversary with an extended summer exhibition.

The piece was published on Banksy’s Instagram account on 11 June 2018. In his own words:

“I entered an early version of this into the RA summer exhibition under the pseudonym Bryan S Gaakman – an anagram of ‘banksy anagram’. It was refused. Then a month later I got a mail from the co-ordinator Grayson Perry asking me to submit something so I sent it again. It’s now hanging in gallery 3.”
