Say Goodbye To Banksy

Banksy finished his month-long street-art escapades in New York City, what some may call vandalism, with one last tag in Long Island City.

SIZED-31st-OCT_-image-01Now that Banksy tagged his final farewell graffiti art, we are sure Mayor Michael Bloomberg will sleep happier.

The last piece of street art he sketched was his name in white bubble-letters on the exterior of a building located at 35th Street and Borden Avenue.

On Banksy’s homepage, he titled the art work, “An inflatable throw-up on the Long Island Expressway.”

To end on a thought-provoking note, Banksy left an audio clip on his homepage in which he speaks about cave walls and buildings being the rightful place for art, so it can be seen in a public space to voice concerns, start debates and forge identities.

He thinks we should live in a world made of art, not just decorated by it.

And how can we forget to mention, Banksy finally voices his opinion about the “Graffiti Mecca” at 5Pointz in Long Island City

He left a short, but simple message for 5Pointz, “Thanks for your patience. It’s been fun. Save 5pointz. Bye.”
