Are you a fan of contemporary art? Missing visiting art galleries during the COVID-19 pandemic? Ever dreamt of owning your own Banksy, Kaws or Jeff Koons? View the pieces, and invest if you feel inclined, from some of the world’s renowned contemporary artists in the the comfort of your own home. Digital art investments platform ARTCELS has launched their virtual show entitled XXI featuring 3D artworks by blue-chip artists such as Banksy, Jeff Koons, KAWS, Damien Hirst, George Condo and so many more.
Free to visit online until 18th May, the exhibition can be viewed on all devices but is even better when using a VR headset. The ARTCELS XXI exhibition originally launched in February at the House of Fine Art (HOFA) and was due to open in Mykonos before the schedule was thwarted by the coronavirus lockdown.
The exhibition offers four signed Banksy pieces including his ‘Very Little Helps’ and Strawberry Donut pieces, Blame Game Portfolio by KAWS, Ballon Rabbit (Red) by Jeff Koons and George Condo X SUPREME skateboard decks and his Droopy Dog Abstraction artwork – see all the artists involved and their works HERE

In unrelated Banksy news, the publicity shy artist released a tribute to the NHS with his latest artwork that appeared at Southampton General Hospital. He showed his support of the UK’s medical workers with his ‘Game Changer’ piece that depicts a child playing with a new superhero toy in the form of a NHS nurse. The piece will be auctioned in the Autumn to raise funds for the health service.
