Outdoor sculpture in Chattanooga's West Village

West Village sculptures revealed to be cruel Banksy prank

After much speculation, it was revealed today that the atrocious sculptures located on the sidewalks of Chattanooga’s West Village were a cruel prank by Banksy, the anonymous British street artist.

“Why must you punish us with this terrible, terrible art?” said resident Cris Tillzay while shaking a fist at a West Village sculpture with giant letters that spell out “ARTSY.” “Okay, I get it, you’re making some kind of point about consumerism, I suppose, but we’re the ones who have to suffer, walking by these eyesores every day.”

“I’m actually kind of relieved to hear this news,” said resident Kelly Modbilden, standing beside a sculpture resembling a peace sign made with the Eiffel Tower and the word “Thoughtful.” “I’d hate to think that someone actually picked out this art, thinking that it was good in any possible way, and paid money for it.”

The sculptures are scheduled to be sold at auction this June at Sotheby’s, after being appraised at £2m each.
