Banksy Hits New Orleans



Just days before the 3rd Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, NoLA was bombed by famed graffiti artist, Banksy. On his site, Banksy explains that he originally came to NoLA “to do battle with the Grey Ghost, a vigilante who’s been systematically painting over any graffiti with the same grey shade of paint since 1997”. I think the pieces are very fitting and send a profound message all that hasn’t been done since Katrina. The area is still very much devastated even now after all this time. Any attention that is brought to this situation is welcome and the pieces are great in true Banksy style.
