Banksy unveils mysterious Theme Park and Art Show in Weston-super-Mare


The world famous artist, Banksy is apparently setting up a mysterious show titled ‘Dismaland’ in a sleepy seaside town of Weston-super-Mare.  What locals initially assumed was movie production being set up at the former Tropicana lido is actually an art show about to open this week.  The local Weston Post received a photo of what looks like an invitation to the show which has an angry smurf with quote ” I hate Streetart!”.  According to the Bristol Post, the invite-only reception will be this Friday and the show opens Saturday for the public.  Fans are already flocking over to the city looking for clues as to whether the set up is really by the infamous Banksy. Stencil works of “Dismaland” with sarcastic statements such as “Life isn’t always a Fairytale” are emerging on social media around the town.
