A bit of artistic subversion

I don't know what it is that I love so much about this.

British street artist Banksy has added his works to four of New York's most exclusive art collections. Walking in dressed as a British pensioner, the artist added his works to the walls complete with explanatory plaque.

Staff at the New York Met discovered and removed their new aquisition early Sunday morning while Banksy's discount soup can print took pride of place in the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) for over three days before being torn down.

As of now, the other two pieces currently remain firmly in place...

If you've got a moment, check out Banksy's website. Some of his work is pretty impressive.
