This is a major overhaul of an earlier post. There’s a bit more to say about it.
Street art megastar Banksy has been busy around New York this month.
There’s an overview of what he’s been up to at banksyny.com.
I love this piece. Then, there was the market stall where you could buy an original Banksy stencil print for $60. It turned over 420 (sic) bucks. That’s a good day selling art on the street even while the Art-with-a-capital-A world hugs you to death.
Molly Crabapple, another artist I admire, wrote this recommended read about Banksy’s stay in New York.
