Street Artist Banksy in New York City

In case you haven’t heard, Banksy the British street artist renown worldwide, is in New York City doing a type of residency. The artist has put up works all over the city, and many have been reworked or painted over by other graffiti artists. One has to think that much jealousy exists as well since Banksy is the Lebron James of his world. There will always be many haters of such world renown artist. Same with Warhol or PIcasso. It will be interesting to see how long he can keep his identity secret.

Even one hedge fund manager vowed to give $100,000 if Banksy would do a piece to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Via his website and Instagram account the artist has inspired people to look all over the walls and buildings of New York, a sort of game with a new piece every day!

Here is a link to Banksy’s website where he is posting a New York piece once a day:

Here is a link to see an audio guide the artist has posted with his New York works:

And my favorite work of his New York series, the dog relieving himself on the fire hydrant!

Even though I don’t like being around so many people, I wouldn’t mind visiting New York just to see a Banksy work of art in person before it was ruined!
