Banksy Versus Brstol Museum

I recently went to see Banksy’s latest exhibition in Bristol to see what all the hype was about. The exhibition was completely refreshing and different to any other I have been to before. Banksy had installed over 100 of his own artworks alongside some of the museums more traditional artefacts. The work was humorous inventive and surprising at times, he is by far the master of surprising juxtapositions and pushing the boundaries of what is deemed acceptable.

The lower floor of the museum housed solely Banksy’s work with around 70 new pieces, elsewhere Banksy manages to infiltrate the classics area with his unique style. Throughout the show Banksy has remained true to his roots as a street artist, he says mounted the show in Bristol to salute the city that supported his early street are career. Overall the exhibition was inspirational and provocative his work is completely unique and cheeky and in a league of its own.
