Banksy Opens Dismaland
“The UK’s Most Disappointing New Visitor Attraction”
Hey, have you heard those Banksy rumors?
If you know anything about Banksy’s artwork, you know the street artist is always pushing the envelope. This week its all eyes on his latest endeavour; Dismaland - a sinister version of a Disney theme park based in a huge derelict outdoor swimming pool on a beach in Weston-super-Mare. Dubbed with the appropriately depressing tagline: The UK’s Most Disappointing New Visitor Attraction.”
Inside the walls of a derelict seaside swimming resort mysterious construction over the last month—including a dingy looking Disney-like castle and a gargantuan rainbow-colored pinwheel tangled in plastic—suggested something big was afoot. Suspicion and anticipation surrounding the unusual activity attributed to fabled artist and provocateur Banksy has reached a Willy Wonka-esque fervor.
Seeing himself as a “quality vandal,” Banksy operates in secret, but his scenes of anti-authoritarian whimsy have won him a colossal following. As a tribute to this quality vandal we have added some of his most well known street art to our Macbook collections, only available through LondonDecal.
