2008_10_rkuszyk.jpgSome thought the bearded man wearing a hoodie standing around the Banksy mural installation yesterday, but artist R. Nicholas Kuszyk (of Rrobots) sent us an email: "the photo of the hooded person is not banksy. it's me, r nicholas kuszyk, a williamsburg brooklyn based artist informally affiliated w banksy and colossal media. i was consulting the paint crew on behalf of banksy who was too busy to oversee the entire process. this might sound like shameless self promotion (the name of the game) but at least i had the foresight, well banksy and i had the foresight, to plan on wearing something that covered my face yesterday in the case of people like david noseypants photog acting all paparazzi. otherwise this ordeal would have made my face public property. a dozen people took my photograph yesterday. david was the most intrusive. well played sir." He also some links to his works, such as this one that happens to have a sexy lady walking by.
