British Artist Banksy Opens Anti-theme Park 'Dismaland'

Banksy never loses inspiration. He's like a ray of hope in the abyss. - Shoeless Jo Jackson

British street artist Banksy is opening a darkly humorous theme park in southwest England that spoofs Disneyland — an anti-theme park if you like.

On its website Dismaland — which opens Saturday for five weeks only — is described as a "festival of art, amusements and entry-level anarchism."

It says it is an "alternative to the sugar-coated tedium of the average family day out."
The theme-park installation features art work by Banksy and other artists such as British bad boy Damien Hirst (he of shark preserved in a tank of formaldehyde fame) and is housed on the grounds of a disused outdoor swimming pool complex called the Tropicana in Weston-super-Mare, a seaside town near Banksy's native Bristol.
“I loved the Tropicana as a kid, so getting to throw these doors open again is a real honor,” Banksy said on the website of North Somerset Council, which owns Tropicana.

Banksy is an elusive artist who has built a reputation for politically and socially charged graffiti placed in surprising locations. His identity has never been confirmed.
The theme park — an apocalyptic spectacle in many ways, say those who have visited it ahead of its open — features a range of bleak, dystopian versions of Disneyland standards from a grim fantasy castle to an "oil caliphate themed" mini-golf course.
In one exhibition, the books of Jeffrey Archer, a popular British novelist and former politician, will be burned each day in a fire pit.
Kids, and lawyers, are not allowed.
"The following are strictly prohibited in the Park — spray paint, marker pens, knives and legal representatives of the Walt Disney Corporation," Dismaland's website says.

Banksy is a shitty artist. $20 Million for Graffiti? Warhol flipped over in his grave. Only Critic will like him.

WTF!!! Warhol???? Im not a banksy fan but warhol is a fucking joke. He 'produced' art that he had no hand in. The brillo pad thing exposed a lot worse then somone selling a wall for $20m. I hope he does turn in his grave as Id like to start soaking the other side of his corpse in piss. Warhol is the sex pistols of the art world, manufactured talentless crap that made a afull lot of money for a lot of people (and still does)

no offence by the way, I like a lot of his stuff, banksys also

There are literally thousands of people better than Banksy. Even "hoodrat" graffiti artists, you can drive through a ghetto and see some really, really amazing murals by hand. Banksy uses a projector then traces it on a wall. He's... a...

*looks around feverishly*

...TRACER!
