If you may have noticed, Banksy just opened his very own amusement, excuse us, Bemusement Park called Dismaland in the seaside city of Weston-super-Mare in England. We went there, we did an exclusive interview with Banksy that is our October 2015 cover story, and now, Banksy has just released a trailer/preview/video that summarizes what could be your family trip to Dismaland. Enjoy.

For the new October, 2015 issue of Juxtapoz Magazine, Banksy contributed not only the cover story and interview, but a statement about Dismaland and his first foray into theme park management. We get firsthand insight into how the project came about, how the artists were chosen, and why the destination is so pertinent...

Well, we had to keep a secret a little longer than we wanted to, but finally today, we have been able to announce our exclusive interview and cover story with Banksy, but also get to be on the ground to preview his newest and largest project to date, Dismaland. Set inside an old public swimming pool facility in the English coastal city of Weston-super-Mare, Banksy told us that is situated for the perfect art audience. Let's take a look inside...

We always keep our eye out on the auction scene, and ArtNet just launched a new Urban Art auction (now through March 10, 2015) on their site that has some solid pieces of note. A few Kaws gems, Shepard Fairey, Faile, Swoon, Banksy, Dalek, Futura, D*Face, and Paul Insect all are available, amongst others, and with Banksy's big Gaza release this past week, we think there is going to be some strong interest in a few of his works here.
Street Art // Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Banksy has just updated his website with new work in Gaza and a video ending in a poignant message "If we wash our hands of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless we side with the powerful—we don't remain neutral."
Street Art // Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Banksy has dropped a few new pieces over the past weeks, and we really like this "Girl with a Pierced Eardrum" work that was put up in Bristol, England found near the city's harbor. The piece is obviously an ode and update to the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring, which if you remember was the subject of a Scarlett Johansson-starring movie. We just wanted Banksy and Scarlett in the same post, and we achieved our goal.

Carnage NYC has released their newest title Banksy in New York by writer and photographer Ray Mock. The 120-page book documents the month-long project or “residency” as the elusive UK artist called it that took place in New York in October of 2013. Banksy in New York offers a first-hand account of his residency: the defacement and removal of his pieces, reactions from neighbors and building owners and interactions between Banksy’s fans and foes.

If you remember, Banksy just won the 2014 Webby for Person of the Year, basically because for one month in NYC, he took over the Internet with his brand of social media and street art in "Better Out Than In". We even got flak for calling it an Internet project. Well, we like to thank the Webby Awards for confirming our editorial. Now, Banksy just released a trailer for "Better Out Than In—The Movie," which could just be his acceptance video for the Webby Award, or an upcoming movie. Anyway, its on the Internet.

To accept his 2014 Webby for Person of the Year, Banksy made this video about his Residency in New York City. Whether you loved it, hated it, felt inspired by it reminded us of why street art, graffiti, public art, whatever it is you want to call it, in whatever form you find it, do it, see it, is an important historical identifier of who we are as humans.
