Style Wars 2: The Battle of the Street Artist

This has been a busy week in the world of Street Art.

On Monday a bunch of Banksy pieces started appearing all over the city promoting his film Exit Through The Gift Shop.

Then yesterday Poster Boy gets 11 months at Rykers for failing to appear in court.

Followed by the defacing of the Banksy pieces with the words “Free Henry! Poster Boy”

Also on Monday Shepard Fairey’s May Day wall on Houston & Bowery gets a gritty old school facelift from ADEK, JADE, FUCT & REFRY.

Looks like the old guard Graffiti Artist want to put the “Street” back into Street Art.

Shouts to We Stole The Show for the Banksy update.
