Banksy – Village Petstore & Charcoal Grill

Banksy - The Village Petstore and Charcoal Grill - Nuggets

Banksy has gone big for his first solo exhibit in NYC. The “Village Petstore and Charcoal Grill” is a bizarre menagerie of the consumed and the consumables. Guests to the installation are treated to animatronics designed to disturb and delight. From cavorting fish sticks to a stunned looking primate enjoying discovery channel monkey porn, it’s all going on in the village.

There are several videos up at the website for the show. This encounter with a leopard is my favorite.
