Banksy – Surreal Petstore

11 10 2008

British Graffiti artist Banksy has opened a surreal exhibition as a petshop in New York. As you can see below, some bizarre ‘animals’ inhabit the shop, but they are all given life through animatronics. 

A shame I can’t get to see them for real, but here’s a BBC News article on his work.

Or check out the pet shop web site by clicking below.

OK, so not strictly moving image based, but Banksy’s new project moves and has been filmed, so there.

If this is interesting to you, then I’d certainly recommend the work of Jan Svankamjer.
