Banksy in New York

//13/10/18
The British graffiti artist Banksy is in New York for a month-long residency: "Better Out Than In". The artist, whose identity is still a secret, has promised a new piece of street art every day. New Yorkers can expect to find anything from elaborate graffiti and street sculptures to video installations and performance art. His work so far has also included more traditional Banksy art such as a heart-shaped balloon covered in bandages, discovered on a wall in Brooklyn.
You can follow the location of each new work and find more information here. Banksy is also posting photos on his web site. "There is no gallery show or book or film. It's pointless. Which hopefully means something”, the artist recently explained in an interview.
