I cannot remember when I came across Banksy, it was a long while back. I was immediately amused and attracted.
I think it was the pieces he did on the wall in the Middle East - flowers and balloons and other items of delight.
I kept my eye open for articles on him, although 'he' could be a she, old, young, black, white, who knows...and I love that...and I never want to know!
Although it seems likely he is middle aged male, lol!
And then I saw Exit Through the Gift Shop and was completely in love. I love a good mystery and a good hoodwink, and he does both in spades!
When I heard there was going to be an exhibit whilst I was in Melbourne, I was beside myself.
How would they do it, what would be included.
It is more later pieces and a few classic, in a huge tent a the back of the Fed Square carpark, a bit of a hike to find...I imagined Banksy somewhere laughing at all these lefties wandering about blindly trying to find the entrance!
Once inside it took on the form of a deserted subway and it was fab.
And of course, we exited through the gift shop!
