Is Banksy Holding A Secret Exhibition To Troll Disneyland?

Banksy, elusive graffiti artist, cultural icon and all around Metropolitan police botherer, is holding a secret pop-up exhibition called ‘Dismaland.’

Complete with a Banksy-ised pink ‘Disney’ castle, the project that will be held in a disused swimming pool in Weston-super-Mare.

Sculptures spotted so far on the site include a petrol tanker warped into an ‘S’ shape, and a metal horse.

Previously the area has been closed-off to the general public, listed as a film location for a crime thriller called Grey Fox, however it has since been revealed by local papers as a front set-up by the artist to put off nosey onlookers.

Slated for release in September 2016, Grey Fox was allegedly due to be directed by Declan Whitebloom – who was previously famous for making several video shorts for Taylor Swift.

The site was labelled with notices reading ‘Crew Notice Grey Fox Productions’ although no cameramen, runners of film production crew have been spotted in the area.

The Banksy rumour mill was sent into overdrive earlier this month when the artist’s reputed manager, Holly Cushing was spotted at the site.

Cushing, formally the PR honcho for Sean Penn, was previously named as an executive producer on Banks film, Exit Through The Gift Shop. Recent financial records show that in May she set up a limited company called Dismaland LTD with Banksy’ long time accountant Simon Durban.

It’s believed the exhibition will open to the public this coming Friday (21st August).
