Bristol Show Banksy
Banksy, the artist everyone loves to hate, opened a new show in his home town of Bristol yesterday. The City Museum and Art Gallery in Bristol is holding the show, and over 100 pieces will be on display. Around 70 pieces are new. The show, which is expected to attract at least 100,000 visitors, will run till the end of August.
Word is that Banksy was actually present at the installation of the show, but no one knew who he was. The exhibition, according to Banksy, is a “salute” to Bristol, a city that has been a supporter of his career and put up with “a lot of mistakes that were made in public”.
