ORGAN THING: Banksy Opens ‘The Alternativity’ – A Christmas Extravaganza in the Heart of Bethlehem…

To celebrate the festive season, Banksy has apparently launched ‘The Alternativity’ at The Walled Off Hotel – a Christmas festival which includes two new street pieces and a play in collaboration with UK Director Danny Boyle.

Just yesterday at 5 pm, the elusive British Street Artist launched a Christmas spectacular in the heart of Bethlehem. ‘The Alternativity’ will host a festive play directed by Bethlehem born artist Riham Isaac, and UK’s top Director Danny Boyle. To celebrate the launch of ‘The Alternatively’, Bansky unveiled two new street pieces. One of the works displays two cherub angles, armed with tools as an attempt to chisel through the separation wall. It is rumoured that the work was painted days ago, hidden from view with a banner announcing the Christmas extravaganza. The second street piece is a text-based stencil that reads ‘Peace on Earth – Terms and Conditions Apply’ – a powerful message that can be found in front of the memorable Milk Grotto Church.

“Watch this space for more updates on ‘The Alternativity’. We’re sure there will be many more projects to grace the streets of Bethlehem over the Christmas period”, this space being the Hang Up Gallery website for that is where this has all been borrowed from today….
