Banksy’s Paint pot angel

I love Banksy’s irreverent graffiti which can be found on many buildings in Bristol. His Paint pot angel is a reminder of the exhibition he had in Bristol Museum and Art Gallery in the summer of 2009 when he was allowed to stage an intervention overnight in the Museum. The full exhibition was dismantled long ago but this work remains as a reminder of the event, which mocked the pretentiousness of the art world but also celebrated it by producing what has become a more celebrated figure since it acquired its paint pot!
