BanksyNY's Broken Hearted Balloon Gets Saved! (what's left of it anyway)

Banksy's Broken Hearted Balloon will have an extended life on the streets now that it has been affixed behind a protective barrier of plexiglass.  Word is the property owner even plans on leaving the Balloon on the building for the public to enjoy.

That's the good news.

The bad news is that what is left of the balloon to protect is only a bastardized version of the original. The majority of Banksy's balloon is still there, but after getting painted over, and around by fame bangers, the final result is just not the same.

  1. I'm pretty sure this comment has already been made but as artsy as N.Y. is they are not handling this entire Banksy visit well. Dear Banksy, Come back to L.A.! Sincerely, Lost Angelino's
