How exciting it must be to live in New York and witness the unfolding of street artist Banksy’s new work.
He’s creating a new scene on a daily basis – and people need to be there quickly to view the works as they’re being painted over, or indeed defaced, at speed.
It would be like a pilgrimage, or quest, to catch Banksy in action.
But no doubt a very cool experience indeed.
It seems a shame that New York can’t protect the works, but that’s the nature of street art I suppose.
You never know when it will appear, and where, and when it does it’s fleeting.
As long as it’s not being covered by some overzealous cleaner, I guess its natural evolution via other artists is okay.
