Cool Videos: Graffiti artist Banksy kills a Disney icon in this odd video piece
Although this is under the "Cool Videos" section, I'm not sure it qualifies that niche perfectly. As an art piece it does, but I can easily see this ruffling some feathers and I think that's the point. Anyone aware of Banksy, the enigmatic graffiti artist well known for his artistic "statements" around the world, will know that this is hardly controversial when it comes to his work. It's the first time we've seen a video piece by the artist, which he posted with the words "I’m not posting any pictures today. Not after this shocking footage has emerged…"
Operation Dumbo Drop?:
Banksy is currently undertaking an artist’s residency in New York that is said to last until the end of the month, so I'm sure there will be plenty of odd, ironic, and "thoughtful" pieces popping up within that time frame.
What do you think? Is this controversial or just more of Banksy's odd style?
