Creating people's geographies
A new Banksy exhibition opens in Bristol this weekend to run for three months, entitled Banksy vs the Bristol Museum. Famous for such memorable artworks as the bouquet-throwing resistance-fighter, the Portaloo StoneHenge and nicely dissonant role-reversals, Banksy is perhaps best known for his stencils-based graffiti that has appeared around the world, including in Palestine. This is one of his latest works, about which Banksy has quipped: “You paint a hundred chimpanzees and they call you a guerrilla artist.”

Jools Moore of Naked Ape Public Relations has written to us to invite readers to be in the running for a Banksy print at HangUp Pictures…? Jools writes: there’s a little viral movie starring Agent Provocateur’s Jen Dawson on the comp page for those interested (which you need to watch to enter the comp!). If it’s your bag you can download the video from here: http://www.naked-ape.co.uk/press/hangup/
Banksy is such a great piss-taking artist! I love the stencils and the satire.
