Fake Bansky vs. Kim Kardashian
“That isn’t…is it?” are the words on the lips of pedestrians with a keen eye and a slight taste for street art who happen to take notice of the recent surge of “Fake Banksys” that have been popping up in the SoHo area since Fashion’s Night Out.
The latest drippy written statement takes a jab at Kim Kardiasian less then a few blocks away from her SoHo retail location. On the heels of the previous fake Bansky mocker “Hansky,” it’s interesting that NYC was reluctant to accommodate the successful MOCA “Art In The Streets” exhibit when there is such an obvious general interest in street art that even mocking street art is stopping residents dead in their tracks.
A slew of amazing shows with some of the graffiti world’s greatest artists are currently on exhibit in L.A. The aftermath of “Art in the Streets.” But that’s okay, we got the fake Bansky.
