Probably some illegal sh*t

going on here...

- Yeah.

- Yo, dude, we're gonna get...

This project's gonna get busted.

- People over here.

- Get the net out of there.

Yo, you want some help?

- When I get on the truck...

- Yeah. Yeah.

Yo, throw it here.

I got it.

Yo. Yo.

Yo. the cops are here.

Move out the way so I can go!

Yo. yo!


Yo! yo! Yo!

Where you going?

What are you doing?

Move! Move!


- It's mine.

- It's not yours.

Let go. Let go.

One last time, you need to let go.

Everybody, let go.

Keep in the dark

to stay out of the light

keep in the dark

to stay out of the light

keep in the dark

to stay out of the light

just hang in the sunshine

la, ah-ah-ah

la, ah, ah, ah-ah-ah

la, ah, ah, ah-ah-ah

la, ah, ah, ah-ah-ah

I'd appreciate if you guys

would back this up.

- Please back up, okay?

- Okay.

Move back!

It was really crazy.

It almost seemed like a scene

out of a movie.

Pleading with the police

to take it out or put it back up.

Turn off your light,

let's step into the dark

sleep away like shining into her

save your face and get behind...

Let's move back.

Move back. Move back.

Into the earth


- He stole it.

- Yeah.

Yo, don't touch me.

What are we doing?

Where am I going?

Let's start off with

a little tutorial on banksy.

Just who is this nefarious character?

Well, that's the thing.

People don't know too much about him.

He's anonymous in the age

where it's nearly impossible

to be anonymous.

He has a great instinct

for pushing buttons.

He's distinguished himself

from other street artists

by having a bigger agenda.

He kind of exploded

into the stratosphere.

All of a sudden, everyone wanted

to talk about banksy...

- "Banksy, banksy, banksy."

- Banksy.

- Banksy.

- banksy.

I've heard about this guy for years.

Like the most famous on earth.

His works are far more famous

than his face.

So, from Bristol, right?

He's an english-born artist.

- What else do we know about him?

- That's pretty much it.

Banksy has never let

anyone see his face.

His following is international.

Banksy's art often has political

and social overtones,

and his controversial work

has appeared on walls across the world.

Including here,

on Israeli security walls

in the occupied west bank.

Since then, he's become popular

on the international auction circuit,

alongside Andy warhol and Damien hirst.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

are among the growing number

of collectors known to pay

more than $1 million for a banksy.

Banksy, a legendary

British street artist,

whose works are now popping up

all over New York City.

All right, he's been tagging the walls

of buildings throughout New York.

There's a well-known graffiti artist

who's making his Mark

in New York City...

On New York City.

I am Beth stebner.

I am a reporter with the daily news,

and I tracked banksy

throughout New York.

He announced that he was doing

a month-long residency,

so every morning, he'd post

to his Instagram account,

and he'd just leave the littlest teaser

of what he was doing.

There's gonna be one piece every day

for the entire month of October.

Every day,

he would post on his website...

...with a picture of the piece,

with no identifying location

for where it is.

Some of them had audio

commentary attached to them.

Supposed to be kind of like

a museum guide.

Hello, and welcome to lower Manhattan.

Before you, you will see a spray art

by the artist "ban-sky."

This piece is typical

of ban-sky's output,

relying as it does

on life-sized characters

viewed at a level perspective
