It seems that the main man himself has continued on his tour of America, and this time putting up a huge mural on the corner of Wooster and Grand St. in Soho, New York.
There’s a thread over on the Banksy forum with updated pictures and people questioning the fact that he’s employed someone else to do the work for him – and whether it’s actually a “Banksy” or not. People are raising some interesting points:
“Ironically, this is a painting of a rat painting itself. Self-recognition is considered the highest form of intelligence. anyone else understand this irony?! By Banksy not painting this piece he references the art and the situation. The whole concept can therefore be considered a Banksy art project.”
Meanwhile, a statement from Laz goes by the following:
“No, there’s nothing by him in the show at all. He’s just planning his own big shows at the moment, so he didn’t have time to contribute.”
Fueling further rumours about an NYC show for the stencil don. Could it be? We’ll just have to wait and see I guess..
