Today (Oct. 18, 2013) on his website Banksy writes:

“Are you the sort of person who enjoys going to art galleries, but wished they had more gravel in them? Then this temporary exhibition space is for you. Housing just two paintings but also featuring a bench, some carpet and complimentary refreshments. Opens today through Sunday 11am til midnight.”

At the bottom of Banksy’s Oct. 18 post on his website he writes:

People ask why I want to have an exhibition in the streets, but have you been to an art gallery recently? They’re full.

And finally, the owner of the building that Banksy stenciled yesterday (Oct. 17, 2013) has an article, “I’m the Accidental Owner of a Banksy,” that you can read here.
