Banksy’s NY Delivery Truck Turned Enchanting Garden Installation

If you’re a Banksy fan, there’s no other place you’d want to be right now than New York City. The elusive artist has started an entire show on the streets of New York called Better Out Than In which, if you didn’t know, is a reference to a quote by impressionist Paul Cezanne, "All pictures painted inside, in the studio, will never be as good as those done outside."

While you can expect his trademark stenciled works to pop up on random walls all over New York, it’s this installation that you’ll be chasing down the street. On Saturday, October 5, Banksy told the public about a New York City delivery truck that he’s converted into a mobile garden complete with a rainbow, waterfall (with real water flowing into a pool), bridge and butterflies. From the front and sides, the white truck looks like a graffiti tagged mess. Look at the back of the truck, however, and you’ll be in for a sweet three dimensional surprise.

Every evening from dusk, this unique truck will be visiting different locations. (It started off in the East Village.) Gothamist has some first photos of the enchanting installation.
