Guys, we have a visitor.
You've definitely heard of this dude
— or woman, or collective. No one really knows for sure. Whatever it is, it goes by the name of Banksy
, and it's painting our town red.
Also black and white.
His new "show" is called Better Out Than In.
We say "show" because you won't find this one in a gallery. Instead, Banksy is taking to the streets each day this month to post a fresh stencil
, which you'll be lucky to find (and Insta) before it gets painted over or vandalized
The first couple, in fact, are already gone. One featured two kids stealing a can of spray paint
from a sign that says, "Graffiti Is a Crime." Another pays homage to old-school wild-style tagging.
Banksy began last week and is supposed to continue all month. At each new work, Banksy also includes a toll-free phone number (1-800-656-4271) for viewers to call to get an old-school audio tour, completely with cheesy background muzak.
We wouldn't expect anything less.
