Banksy Hits San Francisco

San Francisco has a new artist in residence and his name is Banksy. The notoriously reclusive British street artist has hit SF with at least six known locations of his signature graffiti art, which are nicely documented in this video from the Warholian. The artist has garnered quite a following and his reclusive mystic only adds to the allure and value. Banksy does not sell photos of his street graffiti but industrious art auctioneers have been known to attempt to sell his street art on location and leave the problem of its removal in the hands of the winning bidder. Let’s hope our installation survives.

  1. He’s a Bristol boy. Notoriously shy. Would love to hear and see more about his legacy in SF. Great to see he has crossed the Atlantic and on the OCMD.
