The Graffiti King – the masterpieces of Banksy in New York

Banksy is back in the spotlight. And this time in New York, with a visit to the city on his own Instagram account. Banksy has come to town in search of a long-term home to house an entire exhibition on a city street. During a stay in New York titled “Better Out Than In,” the elusive artist documented and revealed at least one day of work on Instagram to ensure his authenticity. Here is the best of Banksy in New York!

The First one    

The comments ranged from predominantly political to black humor and satire. There were comments like: “What happens to Banksy’s artwork on the streets of New York five years later? The public reaction to his work in recent years has been unpredictable. It caused controversy not only among the artist’s fans but also within the art world itself. We are # I took some of the best photos and videos of what Banksy did in New York. Here are his thoughts on what happened and what he did. 

It is currently located in New York City, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Near the corner of Fifth Avenue and Sixth Street in Manhattan

The Next One    

The piece, painted on a roller shutter, imitates classic New York graffiti with the words “This is New York Accent”. And the artist writes in serif under the stencil. For hours, the piece was defaced with tags and angry messages. Many saw it as a sign of the city’s lack of respect for the art and an insult. 

October 3rd    

The October 3 piece, which is on 24th Street near 6th Avenue, shows a dog peeing on a fire hydrant, complete with a bubble that reads: “This is New York Accent. 

The work is accompanied by a satirical radio play that imitates the style of a museum tour. In a tone that makes fun of the nature of the art world, he says, “Look at all the people in the museum, all these people with all this money and all this power, and then you’re in the wrong place. 

October 9th     

On October 9, the artist unveiled a new, elaborate, politically charged mural depicting armed soldiers on horses painting over an empty crowd of cars and trailers. The mural is accompanied by a disturbing audio recording of soldiers fighting, taken from a video of the US invasion of Afghanistan in the early 1990s. He also inspired a man to found the Banksy Restoration Society and took on the task of removing traces that defaced his work. Soon the work was tagged with other artists “work, and he was also blamed for painting traces that defaced his work. 

The cars were eventually dismantled and towed away to prevent further defacing, but not before the mural was repainted. 

There’s more

Someone added a beard to the figure before he was pulled to safety, and the artist painted more pictures on the other blocks. It later emerged that the picture was a 1950s photograph of Berni Schoenfield. The artist’s work “12 October” from Kupferplatz 7 shows a Catholic priest resting his head on his hands against a red background and placing his hand over it. 

Twin Towers    

An unfinished version of the piece was also found in Brooklyn, but it is also protected by perspex. The artist’s work, painted on the same block as the first two towers on September 11, 2001, is certainly the most controversial in the series. It shows an orange flower placed in front of one of the northern towers where an airplane hit the north tower.     

Overnight, the place became a shrine where people laid flowers and the piece was protected by perspex. Eventually, it was stolen and someone painted over it, but it is still there, protected and protected, even though someone stole it. 

 October 17th    

The piece, which was released on October 17 on Cook Street and Graham Avenue in Williamsburg, features two women in traditional Japanese clothing chatting on a bridge and a bonsai tree sprouting from the earth. Some interpreted the work as offensive and played with geisha stereotypes and exoticism of Eastern culture. 

When the play sparked controversy, some described the work as racially charged and suggested that people of color should not be subtly demeaned, implicitly suggesting a low-level, uneducated and criminal nature. The piece is covered with Plexiglas and metal roller doors have been installed for safety. 

October 24th     

The October 24 painting, painted by Larry Flynt, shows a man in a tuxedo holding a flower with the caption “Waiting for Vain. The piece, however, remains intact and will be on display in 2018, according to the New York City Museum of Art.     

The club put its security outside the building to take photos with the players, and shortly after, the club issued a statement saying it planned to remove the piece to protect it. The painting remains in an unknown location, along with several other works from the New York City Museum of Art.    

The painting was painted by a woman wearing a hat and mask and is painted on a wall previously covered in graffiti that read: “This page contains a blocked message. The piece, created in response to the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, was painted over the walls, which had previously been covered with graffiti that read “The site of the attacks, a page that contained blocked messages. Banksy wrote that the new play should be an op-ed for The New York Times, and posted a rejected editorial criticizing One World Trade Center as too bland, spineless and safe. He argued that “this building is a monument to those who lost their lives on 9 September 2001, and the innocence of the terrorists was a sign that they had won.

Is Banksy in New York? Yes? No? Is he going to return soon? Is he into 3D art?
