Banksy’s attempt to ”to host an entire show on the streets of New York.” has had more than buzz surrounding it. Within a day of his first piece done featuring a young, barefoot boy standing atop another figure’s shoulders, reaching for a can of spray paint hidden inside a “Graffiti Is a Crime” sign, it was completely whitewashed within 24 hours.
Next was a piece written in classic graffiti style type reading “THIS IS MY NEW YORK ACCENT” followed by a seriffed typeface reading “… normally i write like this”. That piece was written over within half a day by a toy type graffiti artist.
This morning Banksy unveiled his third installment of a silhouetted dog urinating on a fire hydrant with a thought bubble above the hydrant reading “You complete me…”. Within an hour an artist by the name of Kaffzilla had leashed the dog and vandalized the vandalism. Not sure if this is al part of Banksy’s elaborate plan or he actually thought his work would last the day in the city where street art is as prevalent as taxis are. We have a full month to find out.
