Banksy Hits NY
The incredibly elusive Street Artist Banksy is taking over New York City this fall. Not content with simply a patch of sidewalk anymore, this very public and expansive show is taking over the entire city.
According to The Village Voice, the artist has already started his NYC residency - the first work has been located at 18 Allen Street, near Canal Street, on the border of the Lower East Side and Chinatown. The artwork (pictured) is accompanied by a loopy audio guide, accessed by calling the 800 number beside the stencil.
“This piece is typical of Ban-sky’s output,” a typically annoying audio-guide voice says. “The children in this case represent youth, and the sign represents – well, signs.”
Additionally, the audio guide offers, “You’re looking at a type of picture called graffiti, from the Latin ‘graffito, which means ‘graffiti,’ with an ‘o.”
Let’s see where his next work pops up!
