Banksy’s self-deprecating “Artist in Residence” Video for the 18th Annual Webby Award Ceremony

>

To accept his Webby for “Person of the Year,” Banksy made this video about his Residency in New York City. In it he manages to come off as self-aggrandizing and self-deprecating at the same time. There’s a rambling video of Patti Smith presenting the award to the absent artist, where she somehow manages to repeatedly mispronounce the graffiti artist’s name … “Banksky?!” We link to that here…
