Hanksy Scoops Banksy with Col-Bear Street Art
Britain’s Banksy, the elusive graffiti artist who is well known for his exceptional street art addressing social and political issues, has set up residence in New York and he’s blogging about it. His first post has made his mission clear:
listen to Hanksy’s journey to reconnect with Tom Hanks after a chance meeting.
The Challenge It wasn’t actually a challenge, but more of a quiet hum of neglect. After Colbert tried to coax Banksy to draw something on a dedicated canvas outside his studio, Hanksy came through. Not a bad canvas either. Colbert is watched by two million viewers every night and ranks in the top two late night shows every evening. The exposure was worth at least two million street images.
“Yesterday I set up a stall in the park selling 100% authentic original signed Banksy canvases for $60 each.”
Good, but not the Colbert bump. Today, Hanksy is the victor. Tomorrow, is another day.
