BANKSY WINS “NYC ARTIST IN RESIDENCE” WEBBY AWARD
As many readers remember, last October, cheeky-Brit and artist Banksy captured the imagination of New Yorkers by democratizing art and making New York City his gallery. His month long city-wide exhibit was fascinating because he created his pieces on the fly daily. With the fuzz and po-po’s in hot pursuit, he was as elusive as ever. Lastly, with his savvy use of social media, his local exhibit blew the fuck up became a global phenomenon!
The Webby Awards recently nominated him as their 2014 Person Of The Year and in true Banksy fashion, maybe he was there incognito, maybe he wasn’t.
What we know for sure is that he made up an award and awarded it to himself. Check out this amusing recap video.
For your pure gumption, we hereby award you the República Update’s Balls-to-the-Wall Award!
