Banksy's Amazing Indoor Paintings
In addition to producing street graffiti, indoor paintings and freehand drawings, Banksy is also allegedly responsible for pulling a number of high profile stunts. He supposedly climbed into a penguin enclosure at London Zoo and wrote "We're bored of fish" in letters stretching seven feet high and spray-painted the words "This is not a photo opportunity" on a number of spots that are, in fact, notorious places for photo opportunities. In August 2006, Banksy replaced 500 copies of Paris Hilton's debut CD with his own cover art--he renamed the tracks "Why am I Famous?" and "What am I For?", and altered the images of Paris so that she appeared topless, or with a dog's head replacing her own, and in September 2006 he dressed an inflatable doll up as a Guantanamo Bay detainment camp prisoner and placed the doll on Disneyland's Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ride.
