New Banksy piece in nyc’s soho

The refreshing onslaught of street art continues.  Arriving on a wall near Grand street and Wooster in Manahattan’s Soho is Banksy’s latest work, a three-story high commisioned rat donning the iconic ‘I heart NY’ t-shirt.  The piece was painted by professional sign painters Colossal, who must be fighting over the keeper rights to Banksy’s sketch for the piece. A couple more images after the jump

*Gothamist also has a play by play of the installation

    So what’s the ironic message?

    I have a doubt about this piece. It seems to me that Banksy uses stencils for his work, especially his rats. This, however, looks as though it is drawn by a marker, and while this could indicate a change in the artist’s style, I believe that it may be a copy cat.
