Banksy's tagging spree makes its way back to NYC, a familiar playground for Mr.Banksy. So it's no surprise that he brought his best work since he started this cross-country North America tag-a-thon. His 'heart doctor' makes a reappearance, first appearing in SF. As long as there are walls, I'm sure Banksy will find a way to cover them all. His ability to capture the mood of society with brutal honesty and irreverence seems endless and brilliant wherever he goes.

Pick a winner, kid.
The placard piece pretty much sums up the morale of corporate America, no?

Banksy, the most beloved cynic since Diogenes. Fitting. (I don't claim to have known who Diogenes was, I just use Wikipedia).

Bonus Shots: A selection from his cross-country graffiti tour. When will it end? Hopefully never.

 Banksy heads north to Toronto.
Banksy hit Chicago. Only a couple for now. Come back anytime with an arsenal if you'd like.
That's all for now. Here's hoping he stays in the States for a while and keeps on tagging along. Would like to see him start showing up in metro areas like Atlanta, Milwaukee, Dallas, heck, why not Arizona? I'm sure he'd have a lot to say there.
