Today, it was officially announced that British artist Banksy has constructed a dystopian riff on Disneyland in a derelict seaside resort in Weston-super-Mare, England. Called Dismaland, the ambitious five-week project is sure to attract visitors eager for the artist’s brand of viral culture jamming and populist humor, but there’s a twist. Most of the art on display at Dismaland is not by Banksy — though he has contributed 10 new works — but by 58 artists invited to participate, including blue-chip names Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer, and David Shrigley, and popular artists associated with street art like Espo, Escif, Bäst, and El Teneen. The scale of the project is impressive.

A giant helium balloon bearing the face of an ojisan (middle-aged man) appeared in the sky in Utsunomiya on Sunday, in an event organized by the Utsunomiya Museum of Art to bring artwork to the public outside museums.

The balloon measures 15 meters in diameter and features the face of a man who lives in the city. The man was selected from 218 applicants.
