Banksy has taken to his his personal site to showcase the latest installment for "Better Out Than In," the artist's month-long "residency" in New York City. Consisting of two paintings made in collaboration with Brazilian twin brothers Os Gemeos, the installation is located on West 24th Street between 10th and 11th. Each piece hangs by chains from a railroad trestle, with both showcasing Banksy's signature stenciled style juxtaposed with Os Gemeos' cartoonish characters. The suspended paintings are evidently closely guarded, with accompanying text from the artist making for a compelling invitation: "Are you the sort of person who enjoys going to art galleries, but wished they had more gravel in them? Then this temporary exhibition space is for you. Housing just two paintings but also featuring a bench, some carpet and complimentary refreshments. Opens today through Sunday 11 a.m. til midnight."
