A roundup of Banksy’s latest street pieces include roving trucks and a performance piece where a Ronald McDonald statue gets his shoes shined.
The artist Banksy is not slacking during his month-long “residency” in New York. Â Last week the elusive artist managed to infuriate residents (and the mayor!) with not one but two mural tributes to the World Trade Center on 9/11: one in Tribeca and one found in Brooklyn Heights. HisÂ upsettingÂ stuff animal truck was found equally disturbing.&
You missed it. On Saturday, Banksy set up a nondescript stall on the edge of Central Park, where he sold stencilled prints for $60 a pop. The monkey with a sign, the guy with the flowers, the rat with the smirkâall the classics were there. Too bad nobody wanted them.

"Chris Burden’s epic kinetic sculpture is a complex and frenetic creation which took four years to complete and is a model of a miniature city with an intricate transportation system. It consists of 18 roadways, including one 6-lane freeway, train tracks, miniature cars, a network of buildings, which support the equivalent of approximately 100,000 cars circulating every hour."
