Two Banksy projects -- the documentary "Banksy Does New York" and the book “Banksy In New York” -- debut one year after the British street artist spent his month-long residency in New York City.
Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo, founders of BrooklynStreetArt.com are featured in the documentary, which premiered in this past Friday night at the DOC NYC festival.
If you get HBO, you can watch the film's TV debut tonight -- Monday, November 17th -- at 9pm.
“We are completely honored that director Chris Moukarbel and producer Jack Turner interviewed us first for this important piece of modern street art storytelling because we were really able to tell it from the perspective of New Yorkers who cover the scene daily from the street,” Harrington, BSA editor in chief, said in a statement.
The film includes street art fans, Banksy hunters and the media as well as experts on the present day graffiti and street art scene like photographer Luna Park, blogger RJ Rushmore (Vandalog), culture critic and curator Carlo McCormick and artist/blogger Robert Stevens.
“Also, I get arrested!,” said BSA co-founder and editor of photography Jaime Rojo. “Even though it was a case of mistaken identity and I was released shortly thereafter, this piece of BSA lore is probably one I’ll have to talk about for a while -- now that it’s in the film.”
The book, “Banksy In New York” is by Ray Mock, founder of publisher Carnage NYC, who has been documenting street art and graffiti in New York and around the world for almost 10 years.
