Banksy's Kissing Coppers – taken from a pub wall in Brighton – sells for $575,000 in US
Famous artwork sells in Miami but two other pieces from the elusive Bristol street artist fail to meet their reserves

I totally understand that they may not like it, but, shock, horror, what part of "graffiti artist" in his description did everyone miss.  I have to say in Bristol where I often work they treasure walls he has "defaced" but again, that's their perspective on it, which may differ from New York's.  Fo me I think Banksy adds colour to a sometimes bland world. 

Indeed. It's certainly one of the more interesting forms of "graffiti".

The NYPD PR person appears to have wised up/spun it a bit (maybe they can't quite afford being painted as even as even bigger f tools after the stop & frisk brouhaha, as well as it actually being good PR for the city):

Banksy' street art irritates NYC mayor, but police not looking for him - CNN.com

NYPD Intent On Bringing Banksy To Justice: Gothamist
Banksy may be the hero Gotham deserves, but he's not the one it needs right now, or something, according to the NYPD, which is making his arrest a top priority. The department's legendary Vandal Squad, which aggressively pursues graffiti artists, is reportedly on the hunt for Banksy. "They want to question him in connection with the vandalism,” one law-enforcement source tells the Post. "If they catch him, he will be charged with vandalism."

At a press conference yesterday, Bloomberg signaled that Banksy is, and should be, in the NYPD's crosshairs. "Graffiti does ruin people's property and it's a sign of decay and loss of control," the mayor said. "Art is art, and nobody’s a bigger supporter of the arts than I am. I just think there are some places for art and there are some places {not for} art. And you running up to somebody’s property or public property and defacing it is not my definition of art. Or it may be art, but it should not be permitted. And I think that’s exactly what the law says." (...)

The most famous artist barely known in the world.  A wild imagination and Banksy takes it to the urban landscape...like it or not.

You're welcome?

In some ways it is what most art is supposed to do, namely illicit strong emotions. {#Smile}
