NEW YORK CITY: I CONTAIN MULTITUDES

If I contradict myself, I contradict myself. I contain multitudes.

BANKSY: A DOG PEEING ON A HYDRANT

…At the very least, the information hotline is live (1-800-656-4271, #2). For someone who has totally convulsed New York City with what’s probably the biggest scavenger hunt in history, Banksy somehow managed to stay self-deprecating about his work.

The narrator on the hotline opens his description of the latest piece with: “Are you’re looking at one of the great artworks of the 21st century? If so, you’re in the wrong place. You should be looking at a stencil of a dog peeing on a hydrant.” For more: http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2013/10/banksys_third_a.php

BANKSY: A LIKE-MINDED SOUL

Banksy spottings are adrenaline-inducing, especially if you’re afraid that it’s going to be destroyed by some ass soon after it’s up (like what happened to the one on Canal Street.) You have to rush over and document it. And while you’re there, you can’t help but chat with the other graffiti-chasers, too. This is Jermaine. He was cool enough to let me take his pic with the second Banksy of this month long exhibition:

BANKSY: THIS IS MY NEW YORK ACCENT

“Hello, and welcome to Lower Manhattan,” the message begins, as elevator music plays. “Before you, you will see a ‘spray art’ by the artist Ban-sky. Or maybe not; it’s probably been painted over by now.”

This is the latest foray into street art by Banksy, the elusive British artist, and it is perhaps the most public and expansive of his works, taking over not just a patch of sidewalk or a shop wall but a whole city. Titled  “Better Out Than In,” the exhibit was announced in his usual mysterious, pop-up fashion.
