What happened next: “After Shabbos I got a lot of phone calls,” Israel told VIN News.  “I googled Banksy and thought I would just leave the truck where it was until Monday, but a chasidishe guy called me and said ‘you better go move the truck before someone vandalizes it.’” Israel, truck and Banksy owner – more here.

Banksy – Better Out Than In – Day 25

The Grim Reaper in a dodgem car originally appeared in a painting that was gifted to a band that happened to have the same name as Banksy’s Exit Through The Gift Shop film. Today it made a real life appearance in Houston Street, Bowery circling around behind a fence where it will reappear every night from dusk to midnight until Sunday. See video footage here.

Banksy – Better Out Than In – Day 18

It’s not unusual for an artist to set up a pop up gallery these days but typically they don’t come with gravel and a bench in the open air – especially when it’s open to midnight. Day 18 of Banksy’s New York residency sees him team up with Brazilian twins Os Gêmeos in a couple of paintings where they combine their distinctive styles. Also includes some drinksavailable from a nearby drinks dispenser.

Banksy – Better Out Than In – Day 17

In common with other recent Banksy works in New York it wasn’t long before this arch turned into a bridge was on the receiving end of some additional spraypaint. The guy who did it was limited in what he could do by the swift intervention of a crowd around the stencil and a representative of the building. It’s odd when a vandal attacking another vandals work gets accused of vandalism and gets attacked himself.
