So Banksy came to town. Presumably, a bit before the (RED) Auction last week. And as any artist would do, he left his mark in a couple places across the city. We have found one on the island of Manhattan, A Little Bo Peep bangin some change out of the pay phone. But, there are more. Another piece is rumored to be in the old gallery district of Chelsea and one more, the best of them all, residing somewhere off the island (maybe the bronx).
This is not the first time the streets of NY have seen Banksy’s work, there was a tiny rat next to the Gemeos piece in NoLita and another, a Girl with a Balloon that used to be on a red wall on the corner of East Broadway and Jefferson St. And then of course, he did infiltrate our Museums (clouseau hat and all) in 2005. **A reader also reminded us of the Boy and Girl jumping rope in Williamsburg. We are happy to see him return. In the spirit of these finds we are offering up a prize of a TWBE tote bag full of randomness to whoever locates the two missing Banksy’s. Sound good? For more info on this piece above and the prize, contact us. More after the jump.
