Banksy in New Orleans...

|


Renegade stencil artist Banksy has been covering the city with art to commemorate the anniversary of Katrina, the hurricane that killed 1800 people when it struck the coastal city in 2005.

“Three years after Katrina I wanted to make a statement about the state of the
clean-up operation,”
He also attested that the city’s levee wall offered...

“the best painting surface in the state of Louisiana.”
In the art world, timing is everything, and as the anonymous bomber wraps up his project, the city once again braces for the onslaught of oncoming tropical storm Gustav which threatens to again devastate the slowly healing city.
