If you have not heard of Banksy, here is some background from Wikipedia:
Banksy is a world renowned, London-based graffiti artist whose artwork is often political and/or humorous in nature. He has attempted to hide his identity; however, according to The Guardian he is one Robert Banks born in 1974 in Bristol, England. His artwork has appeared throughout London and various cities around the world. His street art which combines graffiti with a distinctive stencilling technique has garnered him underground notoriety and widespread coverage in the mainstream media.
Banksy's Barely Legal will have a three-day showing in Los Angeles this weekend.
The three-day free show titled Barely Legal - and billed as a "vandalised warehouse extravaganza" - has an overall theme of global poverty and injustice.
After much hype and secretive planning, the event opens to the public on Friday following an invitation-only, celebrity launch party.
The organisers have said Cameron Diaz, Colin Farrell and Orlando Bloom are all expected to attend.
They will be treated to a familiar, but in some respects, head-scratching display of graffiti-inspired artwork.
A 37-year old Indian elephant has been painted, from head to tail, in a floral pattern reminiscent of an old fashioned living room or a British pub.
The animal is made to stand in a makeshift living room, complete with sofa, chandelier and decorated with wallpaper in the same pattern.
Banksy, as ever, was not on hand to discuss his creation, but it is understood that the elephant, blending into the background, is meant to represent the big issues in life, such as poverty, that some people choose to ignore.
You also might have caught Banksy's "installation" work at Disneyland last weekend. He placed a life-size replica of a Guantanamo Bay detainee inside the fence of the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ride.
