Banksy Does New York

Documentary


 

Documentary chronicling the famed street artist's "31 works of art in 31 days" in New York City.

"Banksy does New York" is lively and interesting, but stumbles a little when it shows tweets on the screen. Using social media to evidence the excitement and hype surrounding the artist's self-proclaimed residency in New York, works better in some forms than others. Even so this documentary is thought provoking, continually asking "who is the artist?" and "what is art?" There is no question however this enigmatic artist is smart, political, and satirical. It's Banksy doing what Banksy does.
