More BANKSY Artwork Revealed in Park City

At this year’s Sundance Film Festival, one of the last films to get announced was also its biggest: Exit Through the Gift Shop.  Focusing on the graffiti art movement, the film was directed by Banksy and it featured many of the biggest artists in the field on camera and explaining how they work. It was my favorite film at this year’s Fest and it’s now playing in limited release.  Go see it.

Anyway, if you’re a fan of Banksy (and you should be), you know the mysterious artist produces art all around the world and you never know where the next one will be.  But with his movie premiering at Sundance, many suspected he would show up in Park City…and he did.  Around the time of the premiere, many Banksy pieces appeared around the city.  While everyone thought we’d seen it all, with the snow melting in Park City, a new piece has been revealed.  Hit the jump for more:

According to parkrecord, the reason we all missed the rat wearing 3D glasses on Main Street is shortly after Banksy put it up, a snowstorm hit Park City and a snow bank has been covering it ever since.  Now that the snow is melting, the piece has been rediscovered.  If you’re around Park City, it’s near the O.C. Tanner store at 416 Main St.

The big question is what will the city do as they have a policy of covering up graffiti soon after it’s discovered.   While the ban is clearly aimed at teens with spray paint…let’s just hope the city makes the intelligent choice.

Here’s the new image followed by some of the previously revealed pieces.  Thanks to animalnewyork for some of the images.
