British Artist Giving New Yorkers Something Bloomberg Can't - A Smile!

October 21, 2013

Mayor Bloomberg starting to have a resemblance to the Grinch...trying to wipe the smiles off faces when there is something for all and not just some to smile about?

The New York Police Department denies it is actively searching for the mysterious street and graffiti artist known as Banksy, according to a spokeswoman. Yet, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg suggested Banksy is breaking the law with his guerrilla art exhibits.

Annette Markowski, an NYPD public information officer, told CNN police have not launched an investigation of Banksy because they have not received any complaints of vandalism related to the artist.

Every day this month, Banksy has been unveiling new works of art around New York. The works are then announced on his website.

Some of the surprise exhibits are stencils spray-painted on streets and walls of buildings.

Others have included whimsical mobile displays transported on trucks, an animated YouTube video and, on Wednesday, a performance art piece involving a dirt-smeared boy shining the shoes of a life-sized statue of Ronald McDonald outside one of the fast-food chains franchises.

Hammer Boy was discovered on Upper West Side on Sunday

Witnesses say men tried to deface work within hours of it being found

They were stopped by onlookers who had come to see it

'Art' has divided New Yorkers as rival street artists race to destroy work

However some residents have put up shutters and glass to stop them
