Uk street artist Banksy has made headlines once more this time producing a new art exhibit in the UK by transforming an abandoned vacation resort called Tropicana into a 2.5 acre, life-size amusement park called Dismaland.
The exhibit/installation will be open to the public for 5 weeks and features artwork not only by Banksy, but also over 50 other artists including Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer, Jimmy Cauty and many others. Banksy describes his “Bemusement Park” as a “family theme park unsuitable for children”. There’s even an official Dismaland website! I’ll be honest, I’m devastated that I have no way of flying over there to see this. Seriously, who do I need to blow for flights and a ticket to this???
Well thank god Channel 4 News did a tour of it and is probably the closest thing a lot of us will get to experience Banksy’s Dismaland. Check it out below.
Dismaland might be the crappiest place on earth where all you’re dreams are destroyed, but for fans of art it looks like the place dreams are made of.
Seriously moments like this I hate living in Australia!
