  3. I Fought The Law

    Banksy's work obviously references the song, I Fought The Law, while incorporating the elusive artist’s well known anti-establishment rhetoric. Here, a man is in the middle of doing some graffiti, proclaiming his victory over the authorities, yet is caught immediately, effectively negating the statement he was making.

  5. Banksy For Charity

    As part of his New York "residence," the elusive street artist Banksy vandalized a thrift store painting before re-donating it to the thrift store. 

    Titled 'The banality of the banality of evil', it shows a beautiful pastoral landscape marred only by a Nazi officer taking in the view on a bench in the foreground .. 

    Now, the store decided to auction the piece on BiddingForGood.com, with proceeds due to help fight homelessness and AIDS around the city. The E. 23rd St. store immediately drew a crowd of photographers and Banksy fans, with the current bidding status at over $200,000! Let’s see how far it goes!

  9. Banksy hit Queens on the 22nd day of his New York extravaganza with a replica of the Sphinx of Giza — the artist advises you not to drink the replica Arab Spring water. 

    The man who first discovered the work promptly claimed ownership and proceeded to sell its loose fragments for $100 each. Much to the chagrin of another onlooker who would rather sell the piece at Sotheby’s…

  14. Banksy In Central Park

    The elusive street artist Banksy set up shop in Central Park over the weekend, selling original artwork for $60 each, with an elderly man working the pop-up stall at the edge of the park on Fifth Ave. Most people strolled by without taking a second look and, according to Banksy, it took about 4 hours for the first sale to be made, but only after a 50% discount was negotiated.

    Considering that his work has been auctioned worldwide for hundreds of thousands of dollars in the past, this latest move by the artist is unexpected and quite ironic.

  15. Good Morning New York!

    Here’s a look at Banksy's latest work, which appeared on the lower east side's Ludlow Str. Instead of his usual slightly amusing tone, this work seems to be a commentary on the Iraq War, WikiLeaks and government spying.

    A barrel to the left of the spray painted car reveals a 1-800 number which links to audio from a classified 39-minute video of the deadly July 2007 Baghdad airstrikes. It was originally leaked by WikiLeaks in 2010.

    "Think I just ran over a guy," one soldier can be heard saying in the audio, followed by laughter, is just one of many macabre comments.
