Banksy Loves New York

I photographed this huge original Banksy mural in the East Village (New York City) way back in November of last year. The reason it took me so long to post it is that I wish I had a better shot of this (the current shot is too closely cropped). So it sat in HD for a year and Im finally posting cuz I absolutely love this mural. Since I have quite a collection of Banksy shots I just wanted to add to it here in my photoblog. This is one of my favorite Banksy pieces ever! Too bad it was washed over and removed a few days after I took this picture.

    I'm a fan of urban art. Follow it through the city as time allows. Nice tones and colors.

    I've never heard of Banksy. I'm glad you posted it and I don't think it's cropped to close. It allows from viewing him in detail.

  • MARIANA on 13.11.2009 @ 11:28

    Wonderful capture with super processing !

  • don on 13.11.2009 @ 11:52

    A fine graffiti mural of Banksy (new to me too). I'm glad you finally decided to post this version.

    I have 3 of his little books. They're quite collectable now. Gotta love this guy. Just wish I visited the Bristol exhibition but the queues were round the block, every day!
