Banksy rejected by New York Times, fights back with scathing street art piece

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Art on Wednesday 30 October 2013

Banksy’s latest installation smells of resentment. He wrote an article for the New York Times about the new ‘One World Trade Center’ project being ugly. Actually, he called it “vanilla” and “something from Canada”. The article was supposed to be another installment in his daily ‘Better Out Than In’ graffiti series. But predictably, his article was rejected. And like a sulking kid, he went ahead and made a big stink about it with this mural instead. Go Banksy. His work never ceases to make me smile.

An artists residency on the streets of New York.’ Ah huh.
