World famous artist and critic of modern Western culture Banksy was trending last week when footage of his latest, and biggest, project hit the news. He created a giant parody of Disneyland with a very dark twist named Dismaland. Now, this official commercial has been released by Bansky that shows just how creepy of a place Dismaland is. Tickets are available HERE.
The painting is by artist Paolo Porpora, and dates back to the 17th century. It’s on display at an exhibition of Italian Renaissance masters in Taipei, Taiwan. The 12-year-old tripped over and accidentally punched a hole in a 350-year-old £1 million painting, causing headlines around the world. I just think it’s payback to the parents for making this kid walk around a boring museum.
Art isn’t all fairytale photoshoots and landscape shots – it can also act as catalyst of change. And Steve Cutts thinks that many things in the world should be different. Work shouldn’t be a grinding, soul-crushing rat race for the almighty dollar. Consumerism shouldn’t hold a vice-like grip on our lives. And social media, well, we need to throw-off the shackles we so eagerly put on ourselves. Wouldn’t life be better then?
