Banksy | Dismaland | Bemusement Park

Dismaland-Bemusement-Park-by-Banksy_40 Dismaland-Bemusement-Park-by-Banksy_6 Dismaland-Bemusement-Park-by-Banksy_10 LONDON — The elusive British graffiti artist Banksy has unveiled his latest project – a parody of a seaside theme park called “Dismaland” complete with a derelict castle, a dead Cinderella and a Grim Reaper in a bumper car. The artist, best known for his subversive, stenciled street art, said it was a “festival of art, amusements and entry-level anarchism.” Dismaland-Bemusement-Park-by-Banksy_7 Dismaland-Bemusement-Park-by-Banksy_8   Dismaland-Bemusement-Park-by-Banksy_27 Dismaland-Bemusement-Park-by-Banksy_12 “I guess you’d say it’s a theme park whose big theme is theme parks should have bigger themes,” he said in a statement. While Banksy said it was “not a swipe at Disney,” it’s difficult to ignore the reminders of Disneyland – from the gray castle and the skewed sculpture of Ariel the mermaid in front of it, to the exhibit of Cinderella in her carriage. Only this princess hangs out of her crashed carriage, apparently dead, as paparazzi look on.

It includes new works from Banksy, as well as art galleries featuring some 50 international and British artists including Damien Hirst. Musical performances and arcade games complete the experience. Among the exhibits: a sculpture of a woman attacked by a cloud of seagulls, a killer whale leaping out of a toilet bowl and a pond where visitors can steer model boats crammed with migrants. The park opened to the public Saturday and runs until Sept. 27.
