Elusive graffiti artist Banksy has graced the streets of New York City once again with a new bewhiskered art offering, this time a rat scurrying inside a clock on the side of a former bank at 101 West 14th Street; the building is slated for demolition in a few months. Banksy posted news of his newest addition via his Instagram account yesterday.
Plans have been filed to replace the building with a 13-story ODA New York-designed condo. The new building will contain 45 apartments and ground floor retail.
Banksy’s last foray into NYC was a month-long residency he did in the fall of 2013, no one’s saying whether the sadly temporary hickory-dickory-demo rodent will be the start of a new series or just a one-off.
