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.

We are convinced that Herbert Baglione — who has a history of seeking out abandoned buildings so he can paint black beings oozing out of their walls — has found his perfect setting with this asylum in Parma, Italy. These paintings look so right at home in the creepy setting, we are pretty sure we […]
