Banksy works heading to Cockatoo Island

A private collection of 23 works by Banksy, the world’s most famous street artist, is headed to Sydney's Cockatoo Island this November as part of the Outpost Project street art festival.

The Banksy works are all owned by a private New Zealand collector and are part of the Oi You! Collection, never before seen in this country, that contains more than 70 rare and original pieces by the world’s leading street artists.

Presented by the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust, Outpost Project, Art from the Streets runs from 4 November until 11 December 2011 and features over 100 local and international artists and artists’ collectives, making it the biggest street art festival in the Southern Hemisphere.
