The elusive and downright famous street artist Banksy just released an update yesterday on his site that he will be doing a 31 day “residency” in New York City in which he will put up a new piece each day of the month in October. To document the project, a website, entitled Better Out Than In was also launched and already features the first two pieces for the month (shown above). A phone number has also been provided that allows those interested to call in and hear some fairly funny information audio tour style about the location and work.
This is pretty exciting as we haven't really seen a huge rush of work from the artist for a few years, so it will be great to see what comes out of this experiment. At the very least, the residents will have 31 works they can chisel, cut, and extricate from the streets and post on eBay. Kidding.
Update: You'll even notice that we threw up our own little digital tag on the top image. Representin'!
