New Banksy artwork angers the Catholic Church

Casper Johansson Reader Find

By Casper Johansson in New Art on Tuesday 20 December 2011

Banksy has struck again, this time offending the Catholic Church with a bold artwork that critiques their stance on ongoing child abuse scandals. Banksy has taken a replica of a bust of an eighteenth century member of the Catholic hierarchy and added multi-coloured tiles to the face — pixelating it — as a comment on what he considers to be the Church’s cover-up. ‘I’m never sure who deserves to be put on a pedestal or crushed under one’, Banksy noted.

The hotel recommends against using ‘an angle grinder, but you will need plenty of guile and cunning’. Indeed!

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Art on Thursday 24 November 2011

He’s laid low for a few weeks, but he may be back. And with a vengeance. This clever artwork sits on Bruton Lane in London and is an apparent critique on the rampant materialism of our time. Is it Banksy? We may never really know. But it’s damn fun all the same.
