    Hi Boss,

    Yes. All very exciting. My designer used to be a close friend of Banksy, but quite a few have fallen out over changes in commercial direction!

    The exhibition is about five minutes walk from where I live, so will definately go. Will just wait until the rush reduces. Predicting thousands this week-end.

    I was in the museum a couple of times while the work was secretly going on (I didn't know!). They have certain areas for rotating exhibitions - so everyone thought it was a prolonged installation - though clearly VERY large.

    It is nice that he has decided to give something back to Bristol, really nice gesture - an official thank-you; although he did all the work!

    Urban art is really big in Bristol - an exhibition has just finished round the corner from the museum at the Royal West of England Academy.

    I'll try and get some exclusive pics for this fine forum.

    Best wishes

    I'm quite far away, but I would love to see this. I really admire his work.

    I think its funny how he's gone from thug to superstar in many places :icon_biggrin:

    Interesting! It's pretty far for me, but I've already made my demands of my friends to come see :) waiting till everything calms down a bit though. I'm really excited and interested to see it, I haven't seen any of his work in real life and I'm looking forward to finding out more about him. Jealous of MP being so close!
