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.
NOTCOT has more pix of the show.
Pictures of some of Banksy’s earlier work can be seen here:
more Banksy work can be seen at the Artificial Gallery
and at Banksy’s site
update: From the post “Postcards from the Internets“
Banksy! Perhaps his identity has been revealed? The twit’s not convinced, but this:
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.
why yes, those are chicken nuggets feeding on dipping sauce…
update: more Banksy! Banksy! Banksy!
