Manners Maketh Man

Home

Manners Maketh Man serves as a blog and website for those with an appreciation for fashion, travel and lifestyle.

The project was created by Rav Rayet and Richie Keegan, two individuals working as a collective with the intention to inspire and influence through their photography and sartorial preferences. The Manners Maketh Man team consists of several unique yet like-minded people, all of whom share the same passion and motivation as the duo that founded it.

DISMALAND

A few weeks ago we managed to grab a few tickets to Banksy’s pop-up ‘bemusement park’ Dismaland so we decided to check it out. The project was constructed at a disused lido site on the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare which had been left derelict for almost 15 years making it the perfect location for a ‘dismal’ Banksy installation. It attracted more than 150,000 visitors from around the world and at £3 per ticket, it was a bargain if you managed to get lucky on the tedious online ticket sales page. The exhibition, described as ‘a sinister twist on Disneyland’, featured works from the likes of Mike Ross, Jenny Holzer, Damien Hirst and of course Banksy himself. It included a reimagined and distorted Little Mermaid sculpture, a dilapidated fairy castle, a pond of migrant-filled boats and plenty of other powerful socio-political messages of today.
