Banksy's Village Pet Store

Rarely does an artist create work that shocks people right out of the gate. Typically, art takes time to sink it before it is appreciated. Banksy has done the opposite his entire career. From street art to the classroom, he proves with his newest installment that art is meant to act as a social commentary on the times we live in.

My friend Nik Schiller turned me on to this, citing that this is the first time he's used animatronic devices in his work.
