Banksy Begins Street Art Oscar Campaign?
We here at Sound On Sight have been raving about Exit through the Gift Shop for about a year now. The documentary (if you want to call it that) made our top ten list, and last week it was nominated for the Best Documentary Oscar at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards. This week we’ve begun to hear reports that Banksy (or Mr. Brainwash?) have begun their award campaign the only way he (they?) knows how to — street art.
After the nomination announcement, Banksy issued the following statement:
“This is a big surprise. I don’t agree with the concept of award ceremonies, but I’m prepared to make an exception for the ones I’m nominated for. The last time there was a naked man covered in gold paint in my house, it was me.”
