Taking the Mickey down in L.A.
I see that Banksy has been tinkering around with some artwork in Los Angeles.
The movie featuring the graffiti artist well-known for works in certain parts of London is on one of the Oscar lists in LA, so it's not so surprising. Actually, I referenced a Banksy show in The Triangle, without naming names.
There's a couple of items in LA that look like pukka Banksy, especially one of a dog and another of a kid with a crayola gun, but a couple of the others (Charlie Brown and Mickey Mouse) still leave me with some doubts.
Needless to say, the above item only lasted a few hours before the poster gods removed it.
Anyway, I'm sure its all somewhat tongue-in-cheek publicity.
