I mentioned the other day that Banksy had taken down a Hot Tea piece in the LES, to make way for his installation on Ludlow. Apparently Hot Tea wasn’t too upset about it (or maybe even gave permission), based on this new work that I spotted on East 4th, the other night. Apologies for the crappy night time iPhone shot.
I’m seriously digging this new piece in Austria by Bezt (from Etam Cru). Especially, I love the subtlety of the fish.
In other news, Banksy put up a pretty dramatic piece in the LES today. It is my favorite so far, from his ‘better out than in’ campaign. The funny part is that he took down a Hot Tea piece that used to be on that gate. What is also funny, is that I snapped a photo in that same alley earlier this year.
I snapped the above shot on Saturday night on Spring St. The artist is Hot Tea. I’m a huge fan of his yarn spun creations. One of the first Hot Tea pieces that I ever saw was the one below, almost exactly a year ago. It was up for less than a week before someone destroyed it. Hoping that the one above sticks around for a bit longer.
