new banksy going up on wooster and grand

reportage: i stumbled across this painting going up this morning around 11. i thought it was banksy at first, but when the guy who was painting came down from the scaffold, i realized he was american. we talked for a bit and i got them to admit they worked for collossal media, the sign painting company, and they were given the commission. they were told not to tell anyone who it was, but they felt like at this point it was pretty obvious. they started painting this morning, and will be done today. banksy may or may not be in town for the lazarides show on houston and bowery-- but it's possible he's nearby and watching the painting go up.
