As Banksy wraps up his “Better Out Than In” residency of New York City, Day 30 pops out as one of my favorites. The Brit took on the legendary Yankee Stadium as a canvas, painting a leopard stencil along the wall. If you’ve ever been to the Big Apple, you know that the city can indeed take on a “Concrete Jungle” like feeling. This might not be one of his most provocative or satirical, but in my opinion it’s definitely one of the better pieces over the entirety of the exhibition. Today is day 31 marking the end of “Better Out Than In”, stay tuned for the conclusion to what’s been a wild ride.
Banksy continues his “Better Out Than In” campaign with an interesting piece located in Brooklyn’s Coney Island neighborhood. The piece shows a “caught in the act” looking robot spray painting a barcode while a pigeon flies from the scene. Initially one might be confused by the image, but upon further inspection you’ll come to find a few discreet clues. The numbers under the barcode read “132741”, when plugged into google; the number set is the exact set indicating the number code for navy blue. No confirmation on whether there is any correlation, but the NYPD wears a strikingly similar shade of blue and many have interpreted the pigeon as another warning that the police are present (Training Day). Reading in too much? Maybe, either way another dope piece from the British street artist; stay tuned for the conclusion to “Better Out Than In” this week.
Banksy is on fire right now, just incase if you’ve been living under a rock the past 21 days; the British street artist is now on day 21 of his “Better Out Than In” street exhibition within the confines of New York City. His most recent piece features the signature style that we’ve all grown accustomed to, the piece depicts a young lad tagging “Ghetto 4 Life” accompanied by his butler. Playful yet satirical the piece is located in New York City’s South Bronx section displaying a stark contrast with it’s environment. Peep the above piece and stay tuned for Day 22, lord knows what the man, the myth has in store for “Better Out Than In’s” final stretch.
British artist Banksy continues his New York City residency with yet another piece said to be located in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Getting back to his stenciled roots, the piece depicts a child playing the classic “strong arm” carnival game complete with a bell. After jumping into the pool of multi-media, Banksy brings it home with another creative mark on the city of New York, stay tuned for more as his residency continues.
British street artist Bansky traveled to the Bed Stuy section of Brooklyn for his latest installment to his “Better Out Than In” campaign. The above piece depicts two ladies crossing a bridge contrasting their not so serene surroundings. This one is far less striking than the previous pieces he has completed during his campaign, we’ve all seen better from the legendary artist so hopefully he steps his game up for the final stretch.
Banksy CONTINUES his “Better Out Than In” campaign with a couple more street side stencils. The top piece features a quote from the classic movie “Gladiator” while the 2nd piece is a homage to the terrorist attacks on September 11th. Both pieces are done in Banksy’s signature stencil style and can be found in Queens & Tribeca respectively. Banksy’s “Better Out Than In” has become a residency of sorts with rumors swirling that it will last until the end of the month, we’re only half way there so if that’s true expect a whole lot more from the British street artist.
British artists Banksy continues his complete domination of New York City with yet another classic stencil piece. This time Banksy paints a Catholic priest within a slab on concrete housing for pipelines, providing a stark contrast with the priest’s usual surroundings. Not sure how long Banksy’s “Better Out Than In” crusade is supposed to last, but it’s already one for the record book; stay tuned for more.
Banksy continues his onslaught during the month of October with Day 10 of his “Better Out Than In” campaign. This time around Banksy lightens up with a satirical/comical beaver stencil that has apparently chewed through a “No Parking Anytime” sign in the busy streets of New York City. Hopefully people have enough respect to leave this piece alone….at least for a few days geez.
Banksy has been on an absolute rampage the last four days installing an onslaught of pieces across New York City. This time around we have 3 separate pieces where Banksy seems to have added onto existing tags. Banksy’s stencil reads “The Musical” underneath brash comments like “Dirty Underwear” & “Playground Mob” in an attempt to poke fun at how phrases like “The Musical” can lighten almost any title within a commercialized setting. OOOOO Banksy, always with the left field ideas; I guess we’ll have to wait and see what he has up his sleeve next as the rampage continues.
Banksy has been on a tear the last few days installing his 3rd piece (above) in just as many days on the streets of New York City. This time around Banksy has hit up the bustling Midtown section of the city with a stenciled dog peeing on a fire hydrant, the lonely fire hydrant thinks “You Complete Me”. Interesting to say the least, it seems as though Banksy is really trying to get us excited about his upcoming exhibition “Better Out Than In”. Not too sure if it’s too late for the comeback or if he’s reviving something that we need, let us know what you think.
