Over the course of a month-long residency in New York in October 2013, the famously anonymous artist Banksy and his team took to the streets – secretly creating “31 works of art in 31 days”, a variety of public work ranging from elaborate conceptual stunts to traditional graffiti art.
Constantly evading a citywide search by the NYPD, Banksy’s work created a public response that was an equal mix of reverence and derision. From a Central Park stand where priceless originals were anonymously sold for $60, to a junkyard in Queens; New York City served as the canvas for this street art vigilante. The film is an exhilarating survey of Banksy’s city-wide exhibit and at the same time a vibrant portrait of the city itself.
“It’s downright playful, in fact, funky chic and cheeky.” ~James Adams, Globe and Mail
