Banksy continues frolicking along in Los Angeles. His latest work went up alongside some taco joint in Oceanside. According to Hypebeast, “the piece came as a surprise to most, including the shop owner, who contemplated painting the piece over before he noticed the attention its received.”
If you enter into the comments section at Hypebeast, there’s a good three-thousand comments debating whether or not its actual Banksy. I have no fucking clue. I love how the aura of Banksy is so pervasive, his influence permeates throughout boundaries regardless of whether or not this handiwork is courtesy of his agency. The Banksy! He lives. He replicates. Or he doesn’t. But he still does.
It’s late man, I don’t know what I’m saying.
Hit the jump for the work.
Banksy is one of my good ole heroes, and he’s recently returned to Hollywood with some new street art. Perhaps its in some sort of guerrilla effort to promote Exit Through the Gift Shop, which is currently nominated for an Oscar.
Hit the jump for the recent work.
