Shortly after his recent nomination at the Academy Awards, Banksy issued the following statement :
“This is a big surprise. I don’t agree with the concept of award ceremonies, but I’m prepared to make an exception for the ones I’m nominated for. The last time there was a naked man covered in gold paint in my house, it was me.”
Rumors about whether the masked artist will make an appearance at the February 25 ceremonies or pull a Godard is already rampant. We expect he’ll be a no-show for sure — though Los Angeles might expect some of his signature stunts to mark the occasion.
Do you think Banksy will show up and reveal his identity?
