Banksy in New York limited edition book released by independent publisher Carnage NYC
Banksy in New York offers a first-hand account of his residency.
NEW YORK, NY.- Carnage NYC announces the release of Banksy in New York by writer and photographer Ray Mock, the ultimate companion to the British artist’s month-long project on the streets of New York in October, 2013.

Mock, founder of the independent publisher Carnage NYC, has been documenting street art and graffiti in New York and around the world for almost 10 years. His photography has appeared in numerous books (including Graffiti 365, Wild Art and Banksy: You Are an Acceptable Level of Threat) and, while it was live, on the official banksyny.com site). He is also a weekly contributor to the arts and culture website Juxtapoz. When the British street artist Banksy commenced his month-long “residency” on the streets of New York, the author’s unfortunately-timed layoff gave way to the breathless, daily hunt for new illicit artwork.

Banksy in New York offers a first-hand account of his residency: the defacement and removal of his pieces, reactions from neighbors and building owners and interactions between Banksy’s fans and foes. The author draws on his extensive knowledge of street art and graffiti in New York to assess the impact of Banksy’s work from a cultural and art-historical perspective. Mock is as much a fan as a critic of the artist’s work and delivers his account in the form of a personal narrative that is by turns insightful and humorous, paying homage to Banksy’s wit and creativity while challenging the artist – and his detractors – to consider the true impact of his work.

Banksy in New York, priced at $35, features over 120 photos and illustrations on 120 pages and will be available starting August 15, 2014 in a limited edition with a screenprinted cover via carnagenyc.com.
