Jonathan Stone for Art-Sheep

Banksy just beat himself in the most badass, imaginative and… ugly way! A 2.5 acre site in the U.K hosts the street artist’s new project, which is bigger and darker than ever. Banksy and 50 other artists, created a “bemusement” park featuring theme-park attractions similar to those of Disneyland’s, but with a dark twist.

“Are you looking for an alternative to the soulless sugar-coated banality of the average family day out? Or just somewhere cheaper. Then this is the place for you—a chaotic new world where you can escape from mindless escapism. Instead of a burger stall, we have a museum. In place of a gift shop we have a library, well, we have a gift shop as well…This event contains adult themes, distressing imagery, extended use of strobe lighting, smoke effects and swearing. The following items are strictly prohibited: knives, spraycans, illegal drugs, and lawyers from the Walt Disney corporation,” is written on the press release.
