Banksy installed a massive pisstake of Disneyland, called Dismaland, that includes his art and other, at a former swimming pool compound in Weston-super-Mare, England. More images below.
Juxtapoz has an exclusive interview with Banksy in their new issue, excerpted online:
I'm at a point with art where I only really care if the piece is more than the sum of its parts. I'm lucky because what I make either succeeds or fails. Some people undoubtedly would tell you that's why it's crap art, but that's the way it is. I feel sorry for Abstract Expressionists—how do they know when to go home?
All I need is to make my point and get something more out of it than what I put in. If something extra has happened between the idea and realizing it, that's a win. This week I surrounded my Cinderella's carriage with a ring of paparazzi, and the flash bulbs made the shadows leap around the room, and the pumpkin looked like it was lit by flickering candles, so I'm good. I never saw that coming.
