Day 25 of Better Out Than In is here and Banksy just opened his new installation in New York City.
Unveiled at 6PM through Instagram, the British street artist newest stunt is a massive installation inspired by his “Brace Yourself” canvas and his iconic “Grim Reaper” design. The installation of this Grim Reaper in a bumper car is located at Billy’s antiques old spot on 76 E Houston St. Banksy gave the painting to a band after he accidentally “stole” their name as the title to his film, Exit Through the Gift Shop.

Installation will be open Tonight through Sunday, dusk until midnight. Make sure to take a look at the video plus the original piece after the break and as usual stay tuned with us for more pictures and info very soon.
