Banksy’s Top 10 Most Creative and Controversial NYC Works

Posted on Art 2332

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.
