Exhibition of Banksy street art opens in Hong Kong, and his anti-police message should strike a chord

  • More than 70 of the street artist’s works are on show in Kowloon, despite Banksy not authorising the exhibition – he opposes the commercialisation of his art
  • There’s a question about whether street art should be shown indoors, but his popularity and appeal make it likely this exhibition will draw the crowds
