Last week, new graffiti artwork by Banksy started showing up all over Los Angeles, CA ahead of this weekend’s Academy Awards (which has nominated his film Exit Through the Gift Shop for the Best Documentary Oscar). Today we learn that Banksy has made his way a bit south of LA to do some tagging in San Diego, CA. Even tho Banksy took a little trip outside of LA, it’s clear that he is staying in SoCal … just in case he ends up winning an Academy Award this weekend.
Academy Award nominee and legendary street artist Banksy continued his Southern California graffiti spree last night … this time, leaving his signature rat character on a taco shop in San Diego. As we previously reported, the mysterious artist — whose documentary “Exit Through the Gift Shop” is up for Best Documentary — had been tagging up various spots in L.A. over the past few weeks.
If this Banksy piece showed up on the side of a taco shop then there is sure to be more artwork to surface as well. Banksy still has a couple more days until the Academy Awards take place in Hollywood, CA on Sunday night … I’m certain this isn’t the last of his grafitti artwork to surface before the awards are handed out. I am really pulling for him to win the Best Documentary award. Not only do I believe his film is worthy of the honor … but I’m dying to see what will happen on stage if his name is called as the winner.
