In a move as bold as one Banksy would make himself, his former agent (and current enemy), Steve Lazarides, is holding a Banksy exhibition in a car park in Melbourne, Australia from Oct. 7 through Jan. 22, showcasing over 80 works from different private collections.

BANKSY. MELBOURNE. From 7th October - bit.ly/Banksy-Melbourne #Banksy #ArtOfBanksy #banksymelbourne

Lazarides likes to do sh*t for shock value even though that's a juvenile way to do art. He and Banksy haven't spoken in ages, including at a recent Massive Attack concert in March when they kept their distance from each other.

They are mainly hyping the exhibit as rare, in that the works are privately-owned so it's unlikely to know when they will be shown publicly again, but the bottom line is that Banksy isn't going to benefit from this exhibit, as he explicitly states on his own website (pictured below) that he has no connection with Lazarides.



So if you want to support the artist then you should try to fund public art all over the place, so that people like Banksy can make a decent living.

Melbourne's Federation Square has been taken over by an 11-and-a-half metre (37.5-foot) baby named 'Ping Pong' made by Australian artist Felipe Reynolds:



The artist wanted the baby to "incorporate everybody in it," he said, "I wanted it to not be white, not be black, not be female, not be male - just be as inclusive as possible, so everybody can relate to it."

According to the Fed website:

"Interaction is key to experiencing this unique inflatable. Through a camera rigged to The Atrium screen (operating between 7am – 10pm) members of the public will find themselves part of the installation. Upon interaction the frame will be flipped horizontally, so it looks like the baby is sitting on the ground and the visitors become the human mobile. On weekdays from 10am – 4pm, during the school holidays, play with the baby via 4 giant rattles (1.5 meters) based beneath the inflatable."



Well, I think we can all relate to it being creepy, if nothing else.

While walking on Broome, Australia's, Cable Beach, a woman stepped into a giant bird-like footprint of a Tyrannosaurus-like dinosaur that had been revealed by receding sands on the highly-popular tourist beach area.



The area has had dinosaurs discovered there before, but never in such a high-trafficked area, around so many tourists. Current theories are that the dinosaurs are actually still living amongst us, dressed in mumus, and getting their hair braided while on beach vacations, or training for Australian Navy exercises.



Read more about the discovery here.

Watch out, Olivia.




Pretty sure the teacher will give you an extension after they see how far down the drone sank.
