After years of waiting, the time has finally arrived! Banksy, one of my favorite street artists of all time, is back in the States stirring up controversy on the streets of New York City. Its interesting to see how some react to his clever and well thought out artistic stunts. Most people love them for the artistic value, but there are still those who think his art is an act of defacing public property. The Mayor of NYC is one of the few who are “pissed off”, so much in fact, he has requested a citywide search in hopes to arrest the artist. The NYPD may be looking to uphold the law, many others are hoping to catch a glimps of the artist and his work.

His month long stay has become a street art scavenger hunt and possibly the coolest marketing scheme I have ever seen! Involve the biggest metropolitan city in the U.S. and make it so everyone can partake in your citywide art show… Great idea Banksy! His NYC “Spraycay” or Spraypaint Vacation as I like to call it, has taken his art and likability to the next level. Many who didn’t know Banksy before, now do. I am certain that his art, messages, and execution will only get bigger, better, and include more of an “awe factor” from here on out. Conquer New York City, conquer the world! Scroll down to see what he has been up to this month!

This is my favorite thus far! Watch the video below… People have no idea that each of these original Banksy paintings are worth on the upwards of $170,000. The salesman hired by Banksy sold about 10 peices for $500. Those lucky bastards!

The owner of this door was offered $1000 from a Banksy fan. Not sure if he accepted the offer, but the door is now estimated to be worth $100,000.
