Is it an elaborate Oscar campaign for his documentary "Exit Through the Gift Shop?" A subversive statement on Hollywood's biggest night? Both? Either way, Los Angeles has been waking up lately to new pieces by the controversial street artist who goes by Banksy. He doesn't grant interviews and no one knows what he looks like. But the works that have been springing up around town have all of his witty hallmarks.
Light Group -- a Las Vegas company that manages casinos and restaurants -- was thrilled that Banksy chose to tag this billboard with a debauched Mickey Mouse lookalike. They called it "flattering" and said it was "cooler" now. The company has taken it down and is deciding what to do with it. (Banksy)
