Banksy had his first London exhibition in 2001. It was held Rivington Street, when him and another artists took over a tunnel. According to the Smithsonian Magazine, he wrote that, they “hung up some decorators’ signs nicked off a building site, and painted the walls white wearing overalls. We got the artwork up in 25 minutes and held an opening party later that week with beers and some hip-hop pumping out of the back of a Transit van. About 500 people turned up to an opening which had cost almost nothing to set up.” This makeshift exhibition, is exactly what we would expect from Banksy. After all, this is the man who once stated when asked about his anonymity "I am unable to comment on who may or may not be Banksy, but anyone described as being 'good at drawing' doesn't sound like Banksy to me."
