NEWS///STREET LIFE///BANKSY DISAPPEARING FROM NEW ORLEANS FAST
As we've been reporting, BANKSY's pre-Hurricane Gustav art run through New Orleans' battered Lower Ninth Ward produced a flurry of new large-scale pieces throughout the neighborhood that started disappearing almost as soon as the hurricane passed. Now the remaining images that can't be cut down and trucked off are being covered up at rapid pace by locals who don't exactly fancy some rogue Englishman painting up the sides of their houses and stores, regardless of how abandoned they might be. The highlight of this week's cover-ups? The wall formerly home to Banksy's gas mask marching band being reclaimed by the local Gulf Coast Dragons Motorcycle Club, complete with a new handpainted sign where Banksy's stencils used to be.
