Banksy Takes New York

On 31 October, 2013 aBanksy show called “Better Out Than In” stirred the huge city. The show was modeled like a detective novel: every night for one month, the street artist painted some “graffiti” somewhere in the city, posted a picture of the work on the show’s website, and waited for New Yorkers to find his newest treasure.

The works were different from traditional stenciled street art – they were provocative. Near every piece was a phone number to call (1-800-656-4271). Calling it would activate an audio guide to the art. To add variety to the show, Banksy sometimes took videos of his operations, which almost instantly gained millions of views.

Some of Banksy’s best work from this show can be found below.
