I get that Banksy is having a show at the Bristol Museum. What I don't get is the amount of time one person could pull off a show with animatronics and sculptures and extremely elaborate paintings like the one seen with the monkeys in parliament. I am guessing that this was the work of more than Banksy. I'm not saying he didn't have the creative vision. He probably coordinated the completion of a lot of stuff. I think it otherwise would have taken six months to a year of constant work for one person to complete just the little bit of art I seen the video. I wasn't even aware that Banksy did installation pieces but that seems to be the highlight of the show. Perhaps Banksy is a collective rather than an individual?

pretty much ALL "famous" artists have a BIG workshop behind them: Warhol, Koons, Murakami...big pieces require fabricators, engineers, etc. Now that museums are throwing money at Banksy, I doubt he even has to get his hands dirty.
