What is that?
It’s “MY MONTH WITH BANKSY: OCTOBER 2013 IN NYC” by: Jacqueline Hadel. If you’re a fan or lover, it’s a must buy Here On Amazon
After reading Jacqueline’s book, I did some research. Banksy had been (unofficially) in Toronto in 2010. Sadly only 1 of 7 pieces remains, and it’s in this gated private parking.
As I peered through the chain link, I saw the Banksy had been covered in plexiglass, and bordered with steel and rivets.
Also noticeable was that someone had attempted to pry the metal border away. (lower right)
The plastic has been tagged, cleaned, tagged with scratchiti , and then more paint. Nonetheless, it survives!
The other 6 Banksy’s were tagged to death, torn down, painted over…one (on the back of a sign) just disappeared.
Aww, the gate was unlocked, so I just went in for a few shots of the Banksy w/ Jacqueline’s book.
The book is like a diary, going day by day through her month with Banksy.
Thanks, Jacqueline, it’s a very fabulous book!
