Bansky Does New York


Bansky Does New York : Currently on view thru Dec 29 at the Vanina Holasek Gallery

Guerilla graffiti artist makes his way to Chelsea, though this time not on the side of a building or smuggling his art in. To remind you of his tactics, he has smuggled one of his pieces of art into Tate Britain, stencilled “Mind the Crap” writing that appeared overnight on the steps to Tate Modern, smuggled 500 alternative copies of the Paris Hilton CD into record stores, placed a life-size replica of a Guantanamo Bay detainee in Disneyland, hung his perfectly framed pieces in the Metropolitan, MOMA, Brooklyn Museum and his "dead beetle with glued on sidewinder missiles and satellite dish" had pride of place in the Museum of Natural History NYC.

Oh yeah, THAT Bansky!!
