THE REALISTIC WORLD OF BANKSY: “DISMALAND”
THE REALISTIC WORLD OF BANKSY: "DISMALAND"
We all know a little about Banksy. He hides his identity like a secret from everyone because of the large number of lawsuits filed against him and his wish is to be remembered only with his arts.
The Daily Mail newspaper published a photo of Banksy in 2008 and claimed that it was him. In 2013, a group of scientists from Queen Mary University determined that Banksy was born in Bristol, England, and was Robin Gunnigham by a method called "geo-profiling" and confirmed the allegations.
Banksy is still an artist who can boldly criticize today's society and wants to be known only for his works. Banksy is generally known for his graffiti arts that aim to raise awareness on issues such as war, animal rights, and consumerism. He retained the same style as Disney's creator of Dismaland, a nightmare-themed pop up exhibition.
They prepared an exhibition of creative works in Dismaland located on an abandoned estate in Weston Super-Mare, near Bristol in England consisting of 58 pieces of art (10 of which belong to Banksy), including Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer, carefully selected by Banksy. Banksy was captured by cameras again during the work. The exhibition was opened to visitors only for 5 weeks between 22 August and 27 September. We did not want anybody miss it and we wanted to share it with you.
One of the most striking aspects of Dismaland is the official announcement scripts of Dismaland;
"Bring your whole family with you and enjoy the anti-entertainment (!) Park we do in our spare time!"
"This event includes adult themes, disturbing images, excessive lighting, smoke effects, and profanity. It is strictly forbidden to bring the following items: knives, spray paints, drugs and Walt Disney lawyers! "
"Are you looking for an alternative to the soulless, sugar-coated banality of an ordinary family outing? Or another somewhat cheaper place. Then this place is for you; A chaotic new world where you can avoid a mindless "escape from the truth". Instead of a burger counter, we have a museum. We have a library instead of a gift shop, well, we actually have a gift shop too".
