ExplosiveIDEAZ shares a little of the past, it was the year 2009. The first show in Bristol since 2000.
It’s his largest exhibition to date with 100 works on display in a range of mediums and styles. He remixes (or vandalizes) classic paintings, puts a new spin on classic marble sculpture with the likes of Posh Spice shopping, shows some of his more familiar stencil cut-out works with the usual social messages, and displays some of his creepily wonderful animatronic works that received a lot of attention at his New York City pet store show in 2008.
Graffiti artist Banksy’s biggest exhibition has been unveiled by Bristol City Museum, featuring more than 100 of works which were installed in the council-run museum amid great secrecy this week. The show – which was kept secret from council bosses – includes new works including a burned-out ice cream van. Banksy was previously sought for vandalism by the police and council in his home city. He said: ‘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.’
