over the weekend the one and only banksy came to new york and put up a few pieces as perhaps promotional material for his new film ‘exit through the gift shop.’

in true new york fashion though, they were all defaced within a few hours of going up.

Faesthetic friend and contributor Shepard Fairey – aka Obey Giant – has a show at New York’s Deitch Projects (annoying music in link) opening the 1st of May.  The show, which reportedly features around 150 new works, will be the last exhibition Jeffery Deitch does in NYC before shuttering the soho gallery and moving west to take the helm of the Los Angeles MoCA.  To promote the show, Fairey installed a large mural at the corner of Bowery and Houston.  The mural, which covered over a piece by the Brazilian twins Os Gemeos (who are also repped by Deitch) has already attracted a lot of attention, most of it from graffiti writers who feel as if Shep’s lost his edge.

More from: The New York Times

Also: If you’re in NYC and want to hit what should be a good time – Shepard will be DJ’ing with A-Trak at a dim sum restaurant-turned-nightclub in Chinatown following Saturday’s opening.
