YOUNG COSETTE …. “LES MISERABLES”

Banksy is an English-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director whose real identity is unknown.

His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humor with graffiti executed in a distinctive stenciling technique. His works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world. Banksy’s work grew out of the Bristol underground scene, which involved collaborations between artists and musicians.

Observers have noted that his style is similar to Blek le Rat, who began to work with stencils in 1981 in Paris. Banksy says that he was inspired by “3D”, a graffiti artist who later became a founding member of Massive Attack, an English musical group.

Banksy displays his art on publicly visible surfaces such as walls and self-built physical prop pieces.

~Criticizes France’s Treatment Of Refugees~

A new interactive work by Banksy criticizing the alleged use of tear gas in a refugee camp in France appeared outside the French embassy in London, but it was then quickly boarded up.

The mural, the latest in a series of works by the anonymous artist drawing attention to the migrant crisis in Europe, depicts what’s believed to be a young Cosette from the original “Les Misérables” Broadway poster with tears streaming down her face above a canister of tear gas.

The artwork also features a QR code for mobile phones that guides viewers to a seven-minute video that appears to show French riot police using tear gas during a raid in early January in a migrant hot spot called “the Jungle” in the port town of Calais.

While authorities have been moving to clear an estimated 2,000 refugees out of the makeshift camp, a Calais police spokesman denied tear gas was ever used, telling the Guardian,

“It’s not in our interest to use tear gas unless it’s absolutely necessary to restore public order, and it is never used in the camp itself.”

The building’s owners began covering the mural with wooden planks shortly after it was discovered early Sunday to preserve it, BBC News reported.

Known for provocative, politically charged guerrilla street art, Banksy has put the refugee crisis in Calais front and center recently with works including a mural of Steve Jobs painted on a wall of the camp.

Jobs is the son of a Syrian migrant.

Last year, Banksy said he would repurpose lumber and material from his Dismaland anti-theme park in the U.K. to build shelters in Calais.

From a fan:

I love Banksy’s artwork.

It’s amazing that he exposes these situations that some people just brush off their shoulder as if it meant nothing.

Great video.

WELCOME TO DISMALAND

Banksy is back — this time with a deranged theme park mocking Disneyland

Dismaland is a temporary art project organized by street artist Banksy, constructed in the seaside resort town of Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, England. The secretive pop-up exhibition at the Tropicana, a disused lido, is “a sinister twist on Disneyland” that opened during the weekend of 21 August 2015. Banksy has described it as a “family theme park unsuitable for children“.

Banksy created ten new works and funded the construction of the exhibition himself. The show features 58 artists of the 60 Banksy originally invited to participate, and is scheduled to run until 27 September 2015, for 36 days, with 4,000 tickets available for purchase per day.

Banksy’s ‘Dismaland’ in England: It’s a Strange World, After All

(grotesque art theme park)

I’ve seem several headlines, posts, articles and pictures.

I must confess I didn’t know who “Bansky” was until now.

I have read the blogs and now I’m looking closer at this topic.

I also found a YouTube video which shows the final results.

Definitely a family theme park unsuitable for children.

Now a perennial tradition, like the Super Bowl Halftime Show or Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, elusive artist Banksy is back with his latest spectacle — a dystopic “bemusement park,” aptly titled “Dismaland.”

Likely you’ve already seen pictures of its dilapidated castle and polluted waterways, staffed by glum employees whose uniforms read “dismal” across the backs. The human condition is very sad indeed.

Nearly two years ago I wrote about Banksy’s immensely popular month-long residency in New York City, during which he produced a new work each day for one month in the five boroughs.

I concluded then by saying:

“Banksy’s popularity endures simply because he’s preaching to the choir. There’s an insatiable demand for his brand and people are happy getting what they want. They also like feeling smart, and his overwrought images continue to be rooted in the same, familiar liberal values that people are all too eager to agree with.”

Banksy’s now ubiquitous anti-consumerist and anti-authoritarian tropes are fully exhausted in this most recent packaging and Dismaland is, quite literally, art about nothing.

Consumerism is bad, Disney is evil, advertising is dishonest — we got it.

~Behold Dismaland: Inside Banksy’s Disneyland-Inspired Theme Park~

Mashable News

~~Published on Aug 20, 2015~~

Banksy has been secretly assembling his own Disneyland-inspired creation in this West Country seaside town, and it’s not exactly the happiest place on Earth.

Dismaland, which opened to the public Saturday, August 22, 2015, and sits on the 2.5 acre site of the Tropicana lido, is the shadowy artist’s first “bemusement park,” and it’s packed full of subversive artworks.
