Banksy Statues

Today is the final day of my Bansky series and we are ending with some photos of his statues. If you want to see his art work and animatronics then scroll down to my past couple of days posts. The exhibit at Bristol Museum runs until the end of this month so if you are in the area, and don't mind queuing, then it is well worth a visit. Otherwise if it comes to a town near you make the effort to visit, you won't be disappointed.





"If you want someone to be ignored, then build a life-size bronze statue of them and stick it in the middle of town."

I enjoy artists with a wacky sense of humour or strong political statements. I confess that I was repelled by the sculpture of the wired terrorist. On David?! One could say volumes about that one.

I don't know what famous sculpture the 2nd shopper is, but it's my favorite. I checked out his web page. I'll make sure to go if the exhibit comes anywere close by.

PS - very cool new avatar pic. the eyes have it.

I love his sense of humour. The lion made me laugh.

These are hard to ignore.

His sculptures are just as irreverent as his paintings. Hooray for the lion!

This guy is very strange, but in a good way. LOL.

His ironic sense of humour is fantastic! All these are great, I really don't know which one is my favourite.

Marley- Happy belated birthday and thanks for the great intro to Banksy. I like how you fed it to us by category. I like this artist's sense of whimsy and how great artwork is spoofed.
