The couple now gives Banksy, who has been at the top of the art world for more than two years, the unauthorised exhibition he deserves. Before the artist was known to secretly place his works of art in museums.
By establishing the Moco Museum they are able to show the top pieces of art which would normally stay outside the reach of the general public. Many artworks are given on loan to the museum by an international network of initiators.
