SPOTTED: BANKSY IN WEST LA

Posted by

Banksy has graced the community at UCLA (hint hint) with his new “Crayon Shooter” installation, which appeared overnight a few days ago in a remote but pretty accessible area teeming with hipsters (hint hint). When we got to the scene, his cult following was surrounding the piece like a shrine. Some stood around for what seemed like an eternity (that includes us), with really unattractive, drooling-in-awe-looks on their faces, as everyone took turns taking the same, awkward “HEY, I WAS HERE! *OVEREXCITED FACE + THUMBS UP*” pictures. Even the LAPD decided stop by and bask in the Banksy glory. Go check it out before it disappears forever under a coat of paint!

More pictures after the jump…
