This is what happens when Banksy’s nominated for an Oscar…

Apparently, Banksy has arrived just a bit early in Los Angeles and has taken the opportunity to paint the town. TMZ has images and The Week suggests this may be Banksy’s own Oscar campaign, since Exit Through the Gift Shop is up for Best Documentary. One of the pieces thought to be Banksy’s work is an enormous Mickey and Minnie inserted into a billboard. Huffington Post has video of the billboard and it’s removal.

As usual, Banksy shows that it’s not just the what of his art, but also the where and the when.

  1. Thanks for the post. Exit Through the Gift Shop, while perhaps not the most substantive of the nominated documentaries, gave me the greatest viewing pleasure of those I’ve seen. I hope it wins, just to see who shows up to collect the Oscar.

      I’m glad you liked the post and I agree with you about ETtGS. It probably wasn’t the best documentary, but it likely was the most entertaining. AND, I agree with you about the curiosity about who would show up to accept the Oscar for a film that documents illegal activities. Hmmm…
