New Banksy Exhibition in Bristol

The phenomena that is Banksy has just taken over Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery with a secretly planned exhibition. More pics via the Beeb.

'Banksy versus Bristol Museum' is free, and open daily until 31st August. See you there, though no doubt culture vulture Steve Tilley will probably beat me to it.


  1. Just came across the word "Banksy" on another blog for the first time, and now I see it on yours.

    What is it, and what does it refer to?

  2. Banksy is a graffiti artist from Bristol, who's gained a growing reputation from his public art. His website has a trailer of some of the Bristol exhibits.

    here's some of the work he did on the partition wall in the West Bank

    The way he combines images is what gets me: e.g. the dove with crosshairs, the model of Jerusalem in the Bristol exhibition with toy soldiers all over it.
