Overview

In October 2013, Banksy, the world’s most famously elusive street artist spent a month in NYC, popping up on corners far and wide. This tour invites you to explore New York in search for his poetical and funny works of art.

Unfortunately, Banksy pieces don’t last long in New York. As swiftly as they appeared, his stencils are tagged, deteriorated and finally buffed or painted over.

But, do you know what? Even if most pieces have been erased, you can bring them to life again! Along this tour, answer the questions about Banksy's work and philosophy to collect his graffiti. Finally, take a picture with them in their original shape and context using "augmented reality".

Admire what other people can't see anymore; enjoy these pieces of urban poetry and have fun!
