Banksy’s Latest NYC Art Installation Takes Aim At Slaughterhouses

Stuffed animals send a cheeky message

I’ve been following Banksy’s career since the mid-200os, and I’m still not sure what to make of him. If he is really one person (as news reports about him being spotted today suggest). But whatever or whoever Banksy is, the monthlong NYC “residency” that has works of art appearing all over the city is commanding heaps of attention, and today at least it caught ours. The latest unveiling is a faux-slaughterhouse truck carrying stuffed animals through the Meatpacking District, seemingly a commentary on the evils of factory farming (albeit with squealing stuffed animals). Kind of an obvious message, but hey, Banksy can be frustrating sometimes. Check out the video below for a peek at “Sirens of the Lambs”:
