Banksy's 14th piece in his "Better Out Than In" NYC exhibition was discovered Monday in Woodside, Queens on the side of a building at 38th Avenue and 69th Street around 8 a.m.
Approximately 13 hours later, the image--a classic black and white Banksy figure, and corresponding "Gladiator" quote, "What we do in life echoes in Eternity"--were tagged and vandalized by another graffiti artist going by the name "Problem Child."
Other critics later added their thoughts to the Queens piece as well, like one succinct tagger who simply wrote, "F-ck Banksy."
This most recent defacement, suggests that competing street artists will continue to target Banksy's work.
