Banksy's "Better Out Than In" Hits Coney Island

British street artist Banksy continues his “artist residency on the streets of New York” with his latest public display appearing in the Coney Island neighborhood of Brooklyn. The image depicts a surprised robot spray painting a barcode on a brick wall as a pigeon flies above. Though no commentary was supplied in conjunction with this piece, some have noticed that the numbers “132741” under the barcode correspond to a color code for a dark shade of blue – a blue that resembles the one worn by the NYPD. Could it be a jab at New York’s finest or maybe just a look at the notion of consumerism? Now in the last week of his month-long series, we’re anxious to see how it will all come to an end.
