Whilst driving round the outskirts of Manchester on the M60 yesterday morning I passed a lorry load of Pigs with their snouts poking through the gaps in the trailer. This reminded me that I was going to do a blog on Banksy’s latest project in New York.
Banksy’s latest project ‘Better Out Than In’ has seen him take to the streets of New York and produce a new piece everyday for the month of October, much to the dismay of the NYPD.
‘New York police officers are investigating Banksy’s real identity – so they can arrest the mysterious British artist for defacing public property’
11th October saw him produce a piece called ‘Sirens of the Lambs’ in which a lorry of motorised stuffed animal took to the streets of New York in a protest against slaughtering animals.
I’ve always been amazed by his quirky art, despite it being rather controversial. I am also envious of the lady who got two original canvas’ for $60!
Check out www.BanksyNY.com for daily updates from the graffiti artist from Bristol.
I now really need to watch Exit Through the Gift Shop, the documentary film on Banksy!
