Dim Sum, Minions and Cats

It was a bit like Sushi, small bowls and lots of them and strained tea with our lips. We ventured for Chinese Dim Sum for breakfast trying just about everything on offer! A very different breakfast to the British fry up.

    
Penang has become famous for its street art in the last few years so we grabbed a map and went exploring (Find out more here). It’s a mix of wrought-iron caricatures telling the cities story and paintings by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic. We worth a visit if you’re in this area of the world. Graffiti has also appeared on the walls of the city with a minion takeover!

                            

BLOG – #BanksyNY

Whilst driving round the outskirts of Manchester on the M60 yesterday morning I passed a lorry load of Pigs with their snouts poking through the gaps in the trailer. This reminded me that I was going to do a blog on Banksy’s latest project in New York.

Banksy’s latest project ‘Better Out Than In’ has seen him take to the streets of New York and produce a new piece everyday for the month of October, much to the dismay of the NYPD.

‘New York police officers are investigating Banksy’s real identity – so they can arrest the mysterious British artist for defacing public property’

11th October saw him produce a piece called ‘Sirens of the Lambs’ in which a lorry of motorised stuffed animal took to the streets of New York in a protest against slaughtering animals.

I’ve always been amazed by his quirky art, despite it being rather controversial. I am also envious of the lady who got two original canvas’ for $60!

Check out www.BanksyNY.com for daily updates from the graffiti artist from Bristol.

I now really need to watch Exit Through the Gift Shop, the documentary film on Banksy!
