Banksy’s Back! NYC Art Day #24: Waiting In Vain…

I wondered yesterday if Banksy was fed if and done with New York, what with the police harassment and Mayor Bloomberg’s verbal attack. But no, the artist is back today in fine form.

Below the above photo on Banksy’s website it says: “Waiting in vain…”

This work is located in Hell’s Kitchen. Appropriate, right?

Banksy NYC Art Day #14: Low Brow?

Another day another Banksy. This month is truly an overflow of riches. No way to predict what Banksy will do before he does it.


On his website Banksy writes:

Some people criticize me for using sources that are a bit low brow (this quote is from ‘Gladiator’) but you know what? “I’m just going to use that hostility to make me stronger, not weaker” as Kelly Rowland said on the X Factor.
