Banksy in LA

I got a text from my boy that some Banksy images popped up in LA (yes, these are the types of things we talk about) - and it looks like another new image leaked today (althoguh this billboard has already been removed).

It's hardly a normal "for your consideration" Oscar campaign, but the street artist Banksy has been busy in Los Angeles this week. Since Monday he's left several pieces of art on walls and billboards around town -- and while one was quickly removed by the owners, the others are still out there as unusual reminders that Banksy's first movie, "Exit Through the Gift Shop," is nominated for Best Documentary Feature. - The Wrap

The Oscars are quickly approaching - and I have no idea how this is going to play out- but I will be watching closely, and I have a lingering suspicion that a huge piece is going to be displayed the night of the Oscars themselves...
