Day seventeen of Banksy’s “Better Out than In,” street art show taking place in NYC is clever re-work of the existing environment in Bed Stuy Brooklyn, the piece was defaced extremely quickly after going up but some of the local community got together and made some repairs to the work restoring my faith in New Yorker’s.
“Are you the sort of person who enjoys going to art galleries, but wished they had more gravel in them? "Then this temporary exhibition space is for you. Housing just two paintings but also featuring a bench, some carpet and complimentary refreshments. Opens today through Sunday 11am til midnight.”
Today’s piece is located on West 24th street as is the collaboration NY’s first saw in last week’s issue of the Village Voice. These pieces are more or less the holy grail for street art enthusiast as two of the biggest heavy hitters in the game give us not one but two canvases. OsGêmeos compliments Banksy work quite nicely giving his often grey pallet a little color. While people might have been salivating over the Central Parkstunt, whoever ends up with these pieces is truly a lucky cat.
