Architects of a New Dawn

We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.

Banksy is an English graffiti artist. He is believed to be from Yate, South Gloucestershire, near Bristol and born in 1974,but there is no certainty about his identity and biography. His work often satirizes politics, culture, and ethics. His street art combines graffiti writing with a stencilling technique. His art has appeared in cities around the world. Banksy's work was born out of the Bristol underground scene which involved collaborations between artists and musicians.

BANKSY FOR PRIME MINISTER! He believes in the art, not in the celebrity of the artist. I saw the exhibition and I'll give it 5 stars so if you're in the UK get there before 31st August. Admission is free but expect to queue for 2 to 4 hours, the earlier in the day the shorter the queue. If you have disabilities (as I do) phone the museum beforehand and they'll arrange entry without queueing. Thanks for posting this Jeanne, but can I point out that Yate is considered a suburb of Bristol and Banksy is a Bristolian - or a Brizzle if you're local!
