Street life: Cutting-edge urban art show in Belfast for the first time

By Claire Williamson

It's an exhibition unlike anything seen before in Northern Ireland.

A collection of the biggest and most recognisable artists from around the world -including Banksy, Faile and Antony Micallef, was launched last night in Belfast.

Featuring Banksy's famous imagery, snapped up by collectors ranging from Damien Hirst to Brad Pitt, this collection of artists has sold out shows worldwide.

'Breed', the contemporary art exhibition, opened at The National Grandé Cafe for one night only, exhibiting some of the works above. Following its success, the prints from the exhibition will be available for sale from Friday until Sunday, November 30 in the Belfast Print Workshop Gallery - a preview evening will take place from 6-9pm tomorrow.

Curator, Neil Kerr said: "The print workshop is an incredible resource for local artists and it seemed like the perfect place to stage a show that I am hoping will garner interest and excitement with art lovers both young and old. Banksy's work appeals to a wide audience and is a fantastic way of getting people into the gallery to see not only his work but a collection of some of the world's most exciting contemporary artists."
