Banksy Takes New York City

Since the beginning of October, New York City has been taken over by controversial graffiti artist Banksy with the Better Out Than In exhibition. With a new piece appearing everyday the art world eagerly awaits the discovery of each unique statement, with fans flooding to the carefully chosen destinations daily to get a glimpse of his work. A politically fueled British artist, Banksy’s work combines dark humour and bold concepts with the use of his signature style graffiti and thought provoking installations. Nearing the end of a month long exhibition from the elusive street artist, we take a look at some of the most memorable pieces that have stunned the art world, caused controversy and even put him on the wanted list by NYPD’s vandal squad. With a few days left to go, keep up to date with the final art works on Banksy’s New York blog.

Banksy stated ‘ You’re advised not to drink the replica Arab spring water’ about his replica of the Great Sphinx of Giza made from broken blocks. The sculpture was discovered by a man who proceeded to sell loose stones for $100 each.
