I was beginning to feel a little sore that the much ballyhoo’d month-long residency of Banksy, perhaps the world’s most famous graffiti artist, did not include a single visit to Southern Brooklyn.
Then the son of a gun proved me wrong. On day 28 of his 31-day visit, he struck Coney Island, painting the above image on a wall at Stillwell Avenue and Neptune Avenue.
Color me happy.
The piece is the latest in a (short) string of internationally recognized street artists hitting Southern Brooklyn. Late last month, Zed1 and Phlegm, two European street artists, did a pair of fantastic murals on Avenue U in Sheepshead Bay.
