Banksy, the patron saint of the graffiti world, is back in the States for the first time in a minute. The notoriously elusive artist has stayed fairly quiet in the past few years since his 2010 documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop. Some of his Manhattan-based work — including the laudable “Love Is The Answer” tag on W 10th Street — has been tagged over and sent to spray paint heaven.
He’s back to continue his legacy, though. This week, the British icon announced on his website, “For the next month Banksy will be attempting to host an entire show on the streets of New York.” The project is called “BETTER OUT THAN IN” and little details are known, in typical Banksy fashion.
In light of Banksy’s return, here are some of our favorite tech-focused graffiti artists in recent memory.
