Banksy Paints NYC!
After stops in LA, San Fran, Detroit, Chicago, and Boston, it seems the world’s most famous anonymous street artist has finally arrived in the Big Apple. A multitude of Bansky imitations have been spotted in and around New York City, with artists such as Dolk adpoting a Banksy-esque approach to street art. Large, mono-chromatic pieces in busy NYC areas are usually mistaken for a Banksy, though there is nothing like his tongue-in-cheek approach to politics and social commentary. The “I Heart NY” piece was spotted on Cedar Street between Greenwich and Trinity on Monday. Banksy works are being spotted all over the U.S. as he promotes “Exit Through the Giftshop,” a satirical documentary about street art. His work is way more impressive in person than photos, so click through a full list of his New York locations!
