The Banksy Oscar Campaign Continues: New Street Art Spotted in Los Angeles
While the the authorship consensus on the first Exit Through the Giftshop-related Oscar Campaign Art favored Mr. Brainwash, two new pieces have surfaced in LA that many sites say are the work of the Banksy himself. Though I suppose if you think Banksy is Mr. Brainwash, then these pieces bring the campaign art tally to three. Anyway, it seems that Banksy has at least made it to LA and that he's not giving up the golden statue without a fight. Well, assuming that he indeed created these pieces. But hey, they are fueling the buzz either way, so all aboard the Banksy Oscar train! Click through to see murals and send kind thoughts to the Academy, who are probably even more uneasy now.
