Making his mark in all five boroughs of New York as part of his “Better Out Than In” residency, Banksy presents a new piece for the city’s Upper West Side. While previous pieces call upon mixed-media executions, Banksy returns to stencil work for this latest piece. Providing social commentary via a stripped-back, monochromatic illustration, the piece shows a child dismantling a hydrant with the help of a sledgehammer. It’s not the first time the Bristolian artist enlists a child in his work. Earlier the year, Banksy portrayed a young child sewing Union Flag buntings in light of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee – a piece which was then removed from the side of a discount store in North London, only to reappear for sale in Fine Art Auctions Miami catalog. Keep your eyes peeled for more forthcoming work via Banksy’s webpage.
