October 5th is here and Banksy just unveiled his newest installation for Better Out Than In in New York City.
Touring in East Village tonight, The delivery truck (1992 GMC) will visit a different location every evening from dusk. The truck was converted into a mobile garden with rainbow, waterfall and butterflies.
Check out an extra image after the break and then check back with us shortly for more pictures later tonight.

  1. I will pay $100 for the best landscape painting of the interior of the Banksy All City truck. Minimum 5" width. Not kidding.

    1. @The Kharma Initiative:

      $100 for a painting 5' wide? How generous of you! Seeing as how a blank canvas that size costs around $125. The paint to cover it, even student grade, would run $30, brush ware and tear, thinners, mediums, another $20. Oh, and don't forget the labor. You said it has to be the 'best' so that implies skilled labor. A skilled artisan working in their field? No less than $20/hr. (Cheap considering a plumber averages $35). So a 5' painting, detailed, realistic, I'd estimate I could do it in about 30 hrs of work and that is on the low side because I'm fast; I've been a scenic painter. So lets do math: 30hrsx$20= 600+125+30+20=$775 MINIMUM just to get time and materials out of the deal.

      Please, if you want to be a patron of the arts, do so, but give the skilled workers some respect. You wouldn't walk into a car dealership and offer them 15% of the value of a car and expect anything but a laugh.

    2. Check again; it says 5", not 5'.

    3. @GodlessArtist thank you for responding to my comment, I really do appreciate it. It is correct, I specified a minimum of 5 inches, not feet as you believed. I can see the reason for the misunderstanding, as 5 inches truly would be far too small for most artists to create a landscape painting, even of a fake landscape in the back of a truck. However, I felt I needed to pick some minimum size, and I know there are some artists who work in a miniaturized style that could possibly do it in 5 inches (not that I would necessarily want it to be that small).

      I am curious to see how the creative vision of a skilled worker can transform this landscape into a painting.

      If you are interested, you are in the NYC area and can therefore paint the picture whilst outside as it should be done, please contact me. The rates you mention are entirely reasonable and I greatly appreciate your discussion of it and artistry as a studied skill worthy of respect. You will my find my email when you click on my name.

  3. you did notice they wrote 5"... which is five INCHES rather than feet, before you flew off into a rant, right?

  4. rants are ok... i do like the work/hr material;s aspect of the craft. our craft., he discussed. in the 1800's that is all there was. art stars where out of merit.

    i do like the truck alot . Bansky is of merit.. ( of course )

    1. Cool installation Kim. Also like the name "Trailer Park." I don't think Banksy straight up copied you though. That's like saying if you painted a city scape of NYC skyline and then somebody else did that they copied you. If anything I think this is just an example of great minds thinking alike.
