Banksy, on his 24th day of "Better Out Than In" street art residency in New York City streets yesterday created this artwork on the gate of Larry Flynt's Hustler Club at 51st Street in Hell's Kitchen. His caption of the work reads, "Waiting in vain...at the door of the club." Banksy is a pseudonymous United Kingdom-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter. His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti executed in a distinctive stencilling technique. For street art lovers, Banksy's month-long street art show is a fun idea, part scavenger hunt, part mystery, part gallery show. His works around the city have consistently drawn crowds, photographers and confused passersby. Not far from the artwork is an enterprising fan who was banking on Banksy by selling magnets that feature an image of the Hustler Club gate art.
Bloomberg must be sooo happy.
I saw this on the local news very early this morning!
