Banksy’s ‘Vision of the Future’

Written by PETA | June 19, 2009

Bristol-based graffiti artist Banksy‘s latest exhibit, “Banksy v Bristol Museum,” is a guerilla-style installation at Bristol’s City Museum and Art Gallery and features several … well … creative replacements for many of the museum’s artifacts.

 

When the lion gets revenge.

It’s great to see Banksy continue to explore the theme of human/animal interactions, which he also hit upon in his “Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill” exhibit in New York’s Greenwich Village last fall and which I was fortunate to have the opportunity to check out in person. If you live in the U.K. or are planning to visit soon, you should definitely check out what Banksy calls his “vision of the future.”

    This is great! I hope this happens to every a hole who continues to use and abuse animals. Especially China and Japan! With their discusting skinning of cats and dogs. And with the annual dolphin hunt in Japan! I hope they all receive the same fate!

    Please don’t get Banksy mixed up in the PETA movement… please?

    Didn’t he once have an exhibit featuring live animals? I don’t recall when this was but I do recall PETA being pretty pissed off about it. Has he had a change of heart?
