New painted murals by world famous street artist Banksy has been found in New Orleans to mark the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The street artist produced these pieces to remind of the devastation Hurricane Katrina caused and to pay respect to the people of New Orleans who continue to live through it.
Said Banksy, Three years after Katrina I wanted to make a statement about the state of the clean-up operation, and attested that the city’s levee wall offered the best painting surface in the state of Louisiana. In the art world, timing is everything, and as the anonymous bomber wraps up his project, the city once again braces for the onslaught of an oncoming tropical storm
