Gracias a las fechas del archivo de blogger debí de haber posteado esto desde Diciembre 10 de 2004. Bueno mejor tarde que nunca (sorry M. ) Y es el más conocido y travieso artista grafitero.


y de plano no tengo perdón de no haber posteado esta historia desde Marzo...

Banksy haciendo de las suyas en museos de Nueva York:

Se disfrazo de pensionado inglés y como el se cree ya listo para pertenecer al mundo del arte reconocido... Pues colgo sus obras en los museos:

Un turista admirando:

la pintura en cuestión:

The images above - exclusive to the Wooster site and provided by Banksy - are of Banksy installing four pieces in New York's most prestigious museums - The Brooklyn Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Museum of Natural History.

Dressed as a British pensioner, over the last few days Banksy entered each of the galleries and attached one of his own works, complete with authorative name plaque and explanation.

He says - "This historic occasion has less to do with finally being embraced by the fine art establishment and is more about the judicious use of a fake beard and some high strength glue." Banksy continues -"They're good enough to be in there, so I don't see why I should wait"

Staff at the New York Met discovered and removed their new aquisition early Sunday morning while Banksy's discount soup can print took pride of place in the MoMA for over three days before being torn down.

As of now, the other two pieces currently remain firmly in place...
