Banksy Versus Bristol Museum

banksy-icecream-pooLooks like bad boy guerrilla artist Banksy, is playing by the rules. Known for his infamous stunts around the world, at museums (illegally) and on city walls, he now has a legit installation of over 100 pieces at Bristol’s City Museum & Art Gallery. Pretty damn surprising even to his fans and even more so to his friends.

“The people in Bristol have always been very good to me – I decided the best way to show my appreciation was by putting a bunch of old toilets and some live chicken nuggets in their museum . . . This is the first show I’ve ever done where taxpayers’ money is being used to hang my pictures up rather than scrape them off.”
