Banksy’s Top 10 Most Creative and Controversial NYC Works
Banksy was on the streets of NYC in October to take part in Better Out Than In project and as a result, he left marks in different areas of the town on a daily basis. Despite several repaints on his work and taking down of his installations, we are lucky to have everything documented so that we can always go back and have a look at it to appreciate it.
He spent 31 days of public residency in the Big Apple and his works were highly creative. We bring to you a list of his top 10 works from the NY Street Project.
