I’m not a huge fan of Banksy – I think of him as a Street Art Phenom we’ll look back on in 10 years (fine, maybe 15) and say, “remember when people spent millions on that guy’s work?!!”. But since he has such a huge following and his work is fun and not too difficult, here’s what has recently been spotted in New Orleans.
According to Gawker.com, “…to commemorate the third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina on August 29… Some of the pieces relate directly the hurricane and its disastrous aftermath; others are targeted at the legacy of Fred Radtke, an infamous N.O. anti-graffiti crusader known as the ‘Gray Ghost’ for his practice of painting over graffiti in gray paint—regardless of the color of the underlying wall.”
BUT what is WAY more interesting and important in New Orleans this year is the first American Biennial, P.1 or Prospect New Orleans, curated by Dan Cameron.
