Banksy’s “Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill”

From Banksy:

“New Yorkers don’t care about art, they care about pets. So I’m exhibiting them instead. I wanted to make art that questioned our relationship with animals and the ethics and sustainability of factory farming, but it ended up as chicken nuggets singing. I took all the money I made exploiting an animal in my last show and used it to fund a new show about the exploitation of animals. If its art and you can see it from the street, I guess it could still be considered street art.”

For the first time,  Banksy uses animantronics as opposed to his more traditional, graffiti style…

The show is now on display at 89 7th Avenue between West 4th and Bleeker Street in the West Village of New York City.  The inside of the “pet store” holds about 20 people but the majority of the displays are visible from outside.
