10.11.13 … all Banksy today …

Banksy, NYC project, street art, graffiti:  Here is the whole set so far:  banksyny on Instagram.  Today’s made kids cry. 😦

I am partial to the first …

 Why?

Despite the dangers of painting the streets – the criminality, the risk of being identified, the regular frustration of having your work defaced or painted over – the artist isn\’t about to go back to the cosy and profitable world of the gallery.

\”I started painting on the street because it was the only venue that would give me a show,\” Banksy told Village Voice.

\”Now I have to keep painting on the street to prove to myself it wasn\’t a cynical plan. Commercial success is a mark of failure for a graffiti artist. We\’re not supposed to be embraced in that way.\”
