The Venice Biennale is recognized as one of the most prestigious art shows in the world. “For some reason I’ve never been invited,” Banksy laments, as he decided this year to set up his own stall anyway, at the famous Piazza San Marco.

“Venice in Oi” is an original work by Banksy that features Venice’s famous Gondolas dwarfed by a giant cruise ship. The painting spans over 9 framed canvasses and the video posted on Instagram (embedded below) includes a perfect cut to an actual cruise ship looming behind.
