Banksy Exhibition

In a thinking outside the box moment I decided I would try and avoid the 2-3 hour queue for the Banksy exhibition by turning up 2.5 hours before it opened. It made sense in my head at the time.

Ice cream van/information booth

There was a load of stuff there none of which was what Banksy is most famous for, graffiti. Which is not surprising really, as walls aren’t that transportable. What is there is definitely Banksy though. Pictures, statues, installations.

Fish finger bowl

This one is a bit creepy, the thing in the bowl is an amimatronic fish finger that swims around like a fish.

Awesome Jerusalem model

This one had to be the most impressive, I’m not sure if the model is Banksy, but it’s stunning in detail, and covered with model soldiers.

Ooh, controversial!

if she became queen...

I particularly liked the cartoons, they have an almost xkcd.com feel to them (minus maths jokes of course).

Bad flower drawing

There are more photos on my flickr, in this set. The exhibition is running till August 31st. If you are near Bristol you need to go. Go early, queues get up to 5 hours (they’ve closed nearby roads just to accommodate the queue) it gets busy fast, and there’s loads (much more than I’ve got here) to see.
