Shopping Astronaut

Almost forgot to post this stencil graffiti from Stokes Croft, Bristol, which seems to be by an artist called SPQR. (Actually a better photo is this one.)

Meanwhile that other Bristolian graffiti artist and elusive culture jammer, Banksy, is having a big show in Bristol Museum this summer. The exhibition was prepared in great secrecy but is now attracting audiences in droves.

This is the first show I've ever done where taxpayers' money is being used to hang my pictures up rather than scrape them off.

For those not familiar with his work, lots of images of Banksy works in Bristol, London, Palestine and the US. And while museums really aren't the place for his work, his prehistoric shopper-hunter in the British Museum made for a good prank.
