If by any chance find yourselves in the Big Apple during October, do seek to the industrial neighborhoods or the dirty alleys, the work of the famous graffiti artist Banksy. The street-artist is to host an artistic spectacle, entitled as “Better Out Than In” on the streets of New York. Along with the show, Banksy created a new website where one can hear his rather sarcastic commentary -a way of ridiculing commentary tour guides in museums- while admiring his works. Banksy aims to transform New York into a massive museum and has already showcased his first piece in Chinatown – where two boys are depicted wearing clothes of the last century to “tease” a sign that says “Graffiti is a crime“.
