Banksy's Dismaland park: shocking, funny, extraordinary



Clandestine street artist Banksy opens a theme park like no other. Inside a derelict lido in Weston-super-Mare, Dismaland features migrant boats, a dead princess and Banksy's trademark dark humour.

The artist has described Dismaland as "a festival of art, amusements and entry level anarchism".
And the centrepiece of the Dismaland castle will not just outrage the nice people at Disney, but no doubt the legions of fans of Diana, the late Princess of Wales.
Banksy has taken two iconic pieces of imagery and turned them into something that is shocking, evocative and emotional.

Banksy doesn't do interviews, so we asked him by email why he departed from street art?
He told Channel 4 News "for this show I didn't deliberately set out to snub street art. I just found other stuff a lot more interesting.
"I mean, we have a lady from a Lithuanian village who does traditional floral embroidery but with a power drill into the sides of cars.
"I seem to have reached the point where an art show is more interesting the less I'm in it."
