Banksy Does New Orleans... and takes shots at Radtke

props LiamJ for the heads up on this

A tipster has sent us five photos of brand new works by semi-secret superfamous street artist Banksy. All five were just put up in New Orleans, to commemorate the third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina on August 29. Some of the pieces relate directly the hurricane and its disastrous aftermath; others are targeted at the legacy of Fred Radtke, an infamous N.O. anti-graffiti crusader known as the "Gray Ghost" for his practice of painting over graffiti in gray paint—regardless of the color of the underlying wall. They're all pretty great.

God I love Banksy though.
I bumped into his 'one nation under CCTV' painting on the way
back from Swerve a few weeks ago lol.

Hes a good artist, but i think alot of his talent is the way he does his art, its not bollocks grafitti and its not canvas.

i wouldn't classify it is art imho...dont get me wrong, there's a strong message and a medium...but its simple. hes out to prove a point. and u never see that in graffiti
