A website done in the same style as Banksy‘s New York street art exhibition, “Better Out Than In,” has hit the web, with the URL banksy-paris.com. This time dubbed “Back To The Roots,” two pieces from the exhibition have been uploaded thus far, one done in the fifth arrondissement and the other in the eighteenth. The exhibition title must certainly allude to Parisian artist Blek le Rat, widely regarded as the “Father of stencil graffiti” and acknowledged by Banksy and others as a major influence. It’s hard to say whether or not the works are indeed done by the British artist but we’ll be sure to keep you posted as we hear more.
[UPDATE] According to Banksy’s agent, everything from the artwork to the website is fake. Should anything change or if there are developments regarding rumors of Banksy heading to Los Angeles, you’ll be the first to know.
