I just read that the famed anonymous British graffiti artist Banksy is mounting his largest project to date: an unusual showcasing of his work at England’s Bristol Museum. Although this particular project was legit, it still bears the hallmarks of Banksy’s trademark guerrilla approach:
He filled three stories of the building with his art in 36 hours under tight security, as only a few museum staff were aware of the shows’ imminent arrival.
His work is hidden among the museum’s usual exhibits and is split into different rooms, including installations, paintings and sculptures.
Reading this reminded me of another one of Banksy’s projects: a series of amazing protest art he painted along Israel’s barrier wall a few years ago. Scroll down to see some of the more well-known images he put up in Bethlehem. Click the clip above to see the mysterious artist in action…
