Thanks to our friends at Madman Entertainment, we’re giving away 3 double passes to see Banksy Does New York.

Banksy is revered and reviled, considered both a vandal and a genius. Completely anonymous, he is nevertheless without question one of the world’s best known living artists.

Over the course of a month-long residency in New York in October 2013, Banksy and his team took to the streets – secretly creating a variety of public work ranging from elaborate conceptual stunts to traditional graffiti art. Constantly evading a citywide search by the NYPD, Banksy’s work created a public response that was an equal mix of reverence and derision. From a Central Park stand where priceless originals were anonymously sold for $60, to a junkyard in Queens; New York City served as the canvas for this street art vigilante.

Banksy Does New York is an exhilarating survey of Banksy’s city-wide exhibit and at the same time a vibrant portrait of the city itself.
