Banksy Pokes Fun At Jackson
Controversial British graffiti artist BANKSY has made fun of Michael Jackson in a new drawing which goes on exhibition in London today (01DEC06).
Banksy's drawing is inspired by classic children's tale HANSEL AND GRETEL and features Jackson, who was acquitted of child molestation last year (05), crouching in the doorway of a cottage holding out a sweet (candy) to a young girl and boy.
The shock artist - famed for doctoring 500 copies of Paris Hilton's debut album PARIS - says, "I feel the spirit of Christmas was being lost. It was becoming increasingly uncommercialised more and more."
His Jackson drawing is displayed in Santa's Grotto, which is exhibiting graffiti, art and sculpture, from today.
