The art world is often all about status. And nothing gives one more highbrow credibility than being able to say they’ve seen a Banksy in the flesh.
HBO has created a user-generated documentary about the famed and elusive graffiti artist who has built a career on forward thinking and anonymity. Banksy spent October 2013 creating accessible art for all in the city of New York. While the work set social media ablaze, it wasn’t entirely accepted by the street art community. Check out a first look at members of the art world discussing the reaction to Banksy’s work from fellow street artists during the 31-day residency in New York.
Banksy Does New York premieres on November 17 at 9/8C on HBO.
