Street artist Banksy continued his tour of New York this week with stencils, mobile installations, including a delivery truck converted into a garden, and a video called “Rebel rocket attack” the artist claims stopped him from posting new art because of its “shocking footage.”
Like last week’s work, New York’s graffiti artists refused to leave the U.K. import’s pieces alone by tagging multiple stencils. One exhibit – Banksy’s Day 10 piece in East New York depicting his signature rat stencil – prompted four local residents to cover the artwork with garbage bags and cardboard and charging viewers to see the piece underneath.
The elusive Banksy hasn’t commented about the frequent taggings and manipulations of his work on his site or his Instagram, but the artist did post a photo of a tracking device he found under his mobile garden along with the comment, “If you’re the person who stuck a tracking device on the garden truck you’re now following a car service in Queens.” Don’t mess with Banksy, New York.
