If at First You Don’t Succeed… – Banksy (2 pics)


Not one to just rest and enjoy the success of his critically acclaimed documentary, “Exit Through the Gift Shop,” Banksy's been tearing up San Francisco, beautifying the city with over ten pieces within the last 30 days.

Out of the five new pieces that were just found, this one really stands out. “If at First You Don't Succeed – Call an Airstrike,” says a child wearing a gas mask. The piece is a poignant statement about how America is perceived by the world as an airstrike-happy country.
