Model motorized boats crammed with migrants, paparazzi photographing a dead Cinderella, and a pocket money loans kiosk offering cash to kids at an interest rate of 5,000% – these are just some of the installations in Banksy’s new art show, Dismaland bemusement park, which opens on Weston-super-Mare seafront o. The two-minute trailer reveals some of the works by 58 artists, including Damien Hirst and Jenny Holzer, installed across the 2.5-acre site.

Banksy used an anonymous old man to sell several of his original works for US$60 ($63.60) from a stall in New York’s Central Park on Sunday.

The paintings are actually worth around $42,400 each.

The total takings were $445, despite the sold art being worth an estimated $233,200 to $339,200.

“The Sirens of the Lambs,” Banksy’s latest installation features dozens of wailing stuffed animals aboard a slaughterhouse delivery truck that has been driving the streets of New York’s Meatpacking District.

A Los Angeles mural by graffiti artist Banksy is up for auction. Estimated to fetch $150k to $300k. 

Banksy is a pseudonym for an elusive British graffiti artist who first emerged in Bristol, England, as part of an underground group of artists. He has become known for his trademark spray-paint stencils that offer social commentary.

He intentionally hides his identity and real name, but verifies his works by featuring them on his website (www.banksy.co.uk).
