Banksy NYC Art Day #22: Look At The Sphinx, But Don’t Drink The Water

Today we are more than two-thirds of the way through Banksy’s month-long “Better Out Than In” exhibit of art on the streets of New York.

So far, Banksy has generated more press and pushed more buttons during the first 22 days than any other artist in recent history. Maybe that’s an exaggeration, but you get the idea. This artwork in located in Queens.

Today (October 22, 2013, Banksy writes on his website under this photo of his latest artwork: “Everything but the kitchen Sphinx. A 1/36 scale replica of the great Sphinx of Giza made from smashed cinderblocks.You’re advised not to drink the replica Arab spring water.”
