Banksy: Graffiti Artist. Anarchistic Phantom.

Cleverly titled: Looters

Cleverly titled: Looters

The pseudo-anonymous British Street Artist called Banksy, known for his satirical, anti-establishment sensibility, made a recent trip to New Orleans prior to the 3 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. More detail provided by

Big-time British graffiti artist Banksy bombed the Big Easy in the days before the third Katrina anniversary. At least I presume it’s Banksy and/or his minions. That’s the trouble with illegal art: Nobody’s eager to take responsibility.

On one hand Banksy is an international star, who has painted surrealistic outdoor scenes mostly in Bristol and London, but as far afield as Jerusalem. On the other hand, few could pick him out of a lineup — though there’s at least one exhaustive Internet article dedicated to his outing.
