Now, the elusive artist has taken to Instagram to claim a stencil piece that popped up last week in an empty lot on Coney Island Avenue. Boasting a Kara Walker-esque style, the work features a contractor/broker-like businessman stock-lashing kids, women and elderly off a piece of land.
In today's social climate, Banksy is able to speak volumes through his work. While he's always had a message behind each and everyone one of his illegal and/or legal forms of expression, his three most recent pieces to pop up in New York City have a distinct feel to them – they're all Trump-esque in a way.
We'll have to wait and see if Banksy leaves his mark anywhere else on the city, but we're keeping our fingers crossed for now. Stay tuned.
