BANKSY'S DISMALAND.

Banksy’s latest public art installation is perhaps the biggest he’s done. His art show has a canvas which is essentially a 2.5-acre seafront site in Weston-super-Mare which features Cinderella crash scene, post-riot model village and cardboard airport securityLooking more like a post-apocalyptic Disneyland, his latest creation is an installation called “Dismaland”.

Only four people at the local council in the UK knew about the project, while most of the general public were led to believe that it was a set for an upcoming movie. The artist, who maintains his anonymity, called it “a festival of art, amusements and entry-level anarchism. This is an art show for the 99% who’d rather be at Alton Towers.”

There is much to laugh at – the “I am an imbecile” helium balloons, the back-of-your-head caricature artist – but a big chunk of it is deadly serious and overtly political.
