By on Friday, May 24, 2019

Banksy has posted a video on social media of him setting up stall at the Venice Biennale, despite not being invited.

Settled among the street vendors  the street artist exhibited a multi-panelled painting called “Venice in oil.”

Banksy’s canvas on easels, representing a gigantic cruise liner sailing into the Grand Canal, denounces the mass tourism that threatens the city.

The caption of the video, posted to Banksy’s Instagram page, read: “Despite being the largest and most prestigious art event in the world, for some reason, I’ve never been invited.”
