The Looting of New Orleans


Banksy has been hitting up certain US cities, New York and New Orleans. This image is from New Orleans, National Guardsmen looting a house. I love it. Apparently several of his other works in NO have already been painted over. Too bad.

I'm a 37 year old living in the East Bay near San Pablo Bay. I have worked as a Gallery Assistant at a small community college and am a medical assistant who has trained as a phlebotomist. I need to find time in my busy schedule as the mother of a very active toddler to study and get my phlebotomist's license. Interests include cheese, exotic beverages (not the alcoholic kind), ethnic food, improving my culinary skills, bacon, reading, music of all genres and combining all of the above together with friends! Last but not least, I love being the mother of a beautiful, sweet darling little girl. How lucky am I?

  2. I went through all of his images yesterday and bookmarked him for this very series! Isn’t it POWERFUL? Such amazing work! Glad you posted.

  3. beautiful work — did you see the post I did on him not long ago? He has some amazing other bits in this series as well. Such an incredible street artist.

  4. I have done several silhouettes on our garage and barn, copied from him of course. This is an unnerving image.

  5. Hey everyone, thank you for all your great comments. I think Banksy’s work is extremely provocative, and really hits in the gut. It also has great wit.

    Courtney, I must have missed your post about his work, I;m going to have to go back and find it, Don’t know how I missed it.
