Banksy Tours the States

Banksy, the famous UK street artist, has been traveling through the US leaving his mark. His work containing some very political messages have been spotted in New Orleans and Birmingham, Alabama.

New Orleans:

Birmingham, Alabama: 

I guess they didn’t quite agree with his message. It is sad to see this piece ruined, but that is the life span of street art. This life span is a testament to the artist, proving that it isn’t for the money. It is for the message. These art galleries are free. You don’t have to pay a cover. All you have to do is pay attention.

  1. there was a banksy down the street from me in London- a couple of kids hoisting a flag that says “tesco”, it was great. I thought I saw banksy once doing one, but someone else told me that people just get stencils and do their own…then someone who lived in the neighborhood where i saw “banksy” said that it was indeed a real bansky. So who knows, perhaps I saw him at work. Perhaps I saw an imposter- regardless, I love it.
