Artist Banksy opens derelict ‘Dismaland’ theme park

The elusive British graffiti artist Banksy has unveiled his latest project — a derelict seaside theme park called “Dismaland” complete with a run-down castle and a dead Cinderella.

The artist, best known for his stenciled street art, said it wasn’t a “swipe at Disney, but a “festival of art, amusements and entry-level anarchism.”

The project, staged at an unused swimming pool in southwestern England’s Weston-super-Mare, is Banksy’s biggest show to date. It includes art galleries featuring Banksy’s own work as well as those from artists including Damien Hirst, alongside musical performances and arcade games.

Among the dark exhibits: a dead princess spilling out of her crashed carriage and a sculpture of a woman attacked by seagulls.
