BANKSY IN THE CITY

If you live in one of the five boroughs or near New York City and you love art, you’ve probably heard about or been following the Banksy takeover.

For the entire month of October Banksy has been creating different pieces of  graffiti around NYC. You can check out what he’s been up to here. Since the beginning of the month I was excited about possibly being able to see a piece before it was painted over or covered up by local graffiti artists. The thing about Banksy is, you NEVER know when or where he will create something. You just have to be on it. So with that said, little things like work and sleep got in the way for me.

Today however, I was able to make it to see Banksy’s latest piece located on the Upper West Side (Manhattan). He drew quite a crowd. There was even a scuffle – check out the video below.

Only in New York.
