Banksy Exhibit: Bristol Museum (June 13th - August 31st)

Check out this trailer for Banksy's Exhibit at Bristol Museum! (See below)

Banksy (Robert Banks) is considered the most provocative and politically controversial graffiti artist of all time, and that's why we love his work so much!

"Banksy's stencils feature striking and humorous images occasionally combined with slogans. The message is usually anti-war, anti-capitalist or anti-establishment. Subjects include rats, monkeys, policemen, soldiers, children, and the elderly." - Wikipedia

The exhibit opened on Saturday, June 13th and will run for 12 weeks ending on August 31st. Admission is free and open from 10am to 5pm every day. Bristol Museum is located at Queen's Road, Bristol BS8 1RL.

Some of his work may be a bit disturbing and upsetting (especially for young children), but his crafty work demands appreciation and praise, whether you agree with his messaging or not.

(Thanks for bringing this up to my attention Juan. Wish you could be here to join me at the exhibit.)

If policemen are going to snog in full uniform, I think they should remove their handcuffs and truncheons first!
