Bansky’s Bristol Show Revealed


Today, Banksy unveiled the secret show he had eluded to on his website earlier this week. The artist’s largest exhibit to date, Banksy Versus Bristol Museum, opens to the public in his hometown at the City Museum and Art Gallery. The show features over 70 new works, as well as some familiar ones, including animatronics that were first seen at Banksy’s Village Pet Shop in New York last year. “This is the first show I’ve done where taxpayers’ money is being used to hang my pictures up rather than scrape them off,” said the artist in a statement (AP). The show is free and runs through August 31. In the meantime, check out the video tour below, and see more pics via BBC
