Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Every few months, you get a Banksy piece popping up in public, a nice witty thing that circulates the web and gets everyone in a tizzy. But you rarely get to see a new chunk of Banksy paintings get posted on his site in a grouping, and the Bristol, UK-born artist just gave us a nice update of what he gets done in the studio. We always liked his "Sorry: The Lifestyle You Ordered is Currently Out of Stock" motto.
