Art you really surprised? For we are just two lost souls living in a fishbowl...

Banksy: Not one to sweep issues under the carpet

Pure genuis. Whilst politicians plunder in presenting any ecological, sustainable bill as an umbrella for the current climate; along comes our very own Bristolian Banksy with his bold tactfulness. Imfamous for his socio-political street art, the ambigious artiste's latest exhibition is, ahem, a pet shop in central New York. His reason?

" New Yorkers don't care about art, they care about pets. So I am exhibiting them instead."

Yet these are no cute Andrex puppies. Floating fish fingers, Chicken Nuggets in a pen pecking, um, tomato sauce and hot Dogs under a heated survelliance CCTV camera. As usual, his magic finger has led to his medicine being a bitter pill to swallow.

" I wanted to make art that questioned our relationship with animals and the ethics and sustainablility of factory farming but it ended up as chicken nuggets singing".

An artificial microcosm with a authentic moral undertone.
