Banksy’s Village Petstore and Charcoal Grill

October 20, 2008

Apologies to all for not having updated in a month.  I suck.  Hopefully the contents of this post will be worthwhile enough for you to keep reading my blog.  For those of you who don’t know, Banksy (famous UK graffiti artist) recently opened his first installation in NYC.  It’s located at 89 7th Avenue between West 4th and Bleeker Street in the West Village for anyone who plans on visiting (which you should).  It’s called The Village Petstore and Charcoal Grill and consists of odd animatronic exhibits such as chicken nuggets dipping themselves in sauce while the mother hen looks on.  My favorite is what appears to be a leopard, but is actually just a cleverly draped fur coat.  Watch the video and check out the pictures after the fold.
