Banksy’s Monkey is part of a groundbreaking new exhibition opening in Paris on Saturday 5 October.

The show features the largest cross section of street and urban contemporary artists to date.

The works go on show at Galerie Bievre, Galerie Athena et Antichambre, La Marie du 13e, 1 Place d’Italie, 75013 Paris from Saturday 5 October until 15 October.

A curation of works from the world over, the Street Art Show embraces the history of the medium, while simultaneously looking to the future. With notable works from Basquiat and Banksy, the exhibition also champions contemporary talents such as New York cartoonist KAWS and Brazilian duo Os Gêmeos.

Following the exhibition’s run, a number of celebrated artists will be live painting outside the Drouot building, allowing spectators an insight into the creative process.

The exhibition is varied and inspiring, making the Street Art Show an offbeat addition to any Paris itinerary.

The works will then be auctioned by Digard Auctions at the international Urban Contemporary art sale at Hotel Drouot in Paris on Friday 25 October 2013.

Banksy Monkey is estimated to reach 6000 euros.
