One of my favorite graffiti artists, a man whom I admire for his shunning of the spotlight, the mono-cognominal Banksy will be having a solo exhibit at the Vanina Holasek Gallery in Chelsea from December 2 - December 29, 2007. This is Banksy's first exhibit in New York, although he does have some of his graffiti around the city if you are lucky enough to spot it. The opening reception will be held this Sunday, December 2 from 1-5pm. If I was in New York, I would definitely be at this event. Hopefully, when I am up there at the end of the month, I will get a chance to check out the exhibit before it comes down.
