Banksy versus Bristol Museum

Banksy-hirst-spot

Banksy has taken over Bristol Museum, and my just have laid claim to the art event of the summer with this new exhibition Banksy versus Bristol Museum which runs until 31 August.

Queues have been apparently forming around the block to view the show, and inside you will be treated to a remixed version of the museums collection.

Some of the pieces featured in the show have previously been seen in his Pet Store show in New York in 2008, but haven't been previously seen in the UK. However there are also a range of new pieces specially created for this his biggest ever show. There are in total 100 of his works integrated around the museum.

The piece featured above is the remix of an original Damien Hirst spot painting which is being painted over by one of Banksy's famous rats.

The great thing is you get all this Banksy for free, so what more excuse to you need to get down there and see it for yourself.
