a Banksy bonanza

via the BBC:

Graffiti artist Banksy has turned a south London tunnel into a half-mile long exhibition space, but the elusive artist kept its location secret until the last minute.

a gallery of pictures taken of the new exhibition can be seen at this link.

update: From the post “Postcards from the Internets

Banksy! Perhaps his identity has been revealed? The twit’s not convinced, but this:

Banksy's painting on Israel's security barrier

Asked by the paper whether Gunningham was Banksy, he replied: “Well, he wasn’t then”.

Gunningham’s father Peter said he did not recognise the person in the photograph, while his mother Pamela maintained she had never even had a son.

does seem like something that a mother of an artist would say…

update: From the post “morning cartoons

via the Wooster Collective:

This is the first time that Banksy has used animatronics, and the effect is absolutely amazing.
