Banksy does NYC

I've mentioned before that I like the subversive art (often aka graffiti) of Banksy; his 3½ tonne bronze statue of Justice, skirt raised to reveal pvc thigh boots (not leather - c'mon, BBC!), was particularly good, and his stencil graffiti is inspired.

London is his usual canvas, but he 'hit' New York last week, installing his own exhibits unobtrusively alongside the 'real' ones in the Brooklyn Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Natural History on 13 March. The Met's was removed by staff that morning, MOMA's lasted three days, and at the time the Wooster Collective reported the event on 23 March, the remaining two were still in place.

As Green Fairy says: wonderful.
