Banksy's urban art has a universal and timeless appeal, the bandit and folk hero fighting corporate culture. In summer 2009 Banksy - a native of Bristol - carried out an audacious ‘heist’ by transforming Bristol Museum and Art Gallery overnight. The Paint Pot Angel was placed overnight in the front hall of the museum by Banksy for the ‘Banksy versus the Bristol Museum’ exhibition where it still remains today.

Sign of the times where there is nothing sacred anymore, modern art or is the angel so ashamed that he doesn´t want to see the world as it is. Nevertheless, a very intriguing image.
