“Banksy pieces get shot by fanboys, buffed by graffiti writers, and chain-sawed by speculators. Closely surveilled by Instagram followers and breathlessly reported on Twitter with more detailed missives emanating from the home-base of Banksy’s website, every utterance was pounced upon by fans, including an ardent team of photographers, art-bloggers, grand standers and entrepreneurs. Competitive instincts were fueled by an adrenaline rush of mystery merged with a waspy storm of crowd-sourcing and social-media-monitoring, and the crisp air of autumn in New York.
Like an electronic Pied Piper, this entertaining humorist issued a high-alert signal enacted by the artist himself, sending fans and others scrambling through parts of New York they had never heard of let alone visited. For all its liberal patting of itself on the back NYC is still very segregated by race, income, class, and culture – but somehow many didn’t really know that until Banksy compelled them to venture into another neighborhood. With one uneven and at times quizzical program, the piper/jester was successful on many levels, to the thrill and chagrin of many.”~From the introduction to “Banksy In New York” by Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo
