We recently found out that one of Banksy’s latest works was done by buying a painting from the charity thrift store Housing Works, adding to it, and then returning it. The thrift store now stands to raise a bunch of money off of the proceeds for charity, which was no doubt Banksy’s goal. The good deed has inspired us to take a look back at what else he’s done in New York this month.
Take a look at some of this month’s Banksy street art in the gallery.

You can, and should, head over to his website to get the audio that goes along with some of the pieces. It’s pretty entertaining.
