Banksy Bounces Back From NYPD Scare

The infamous London graffiti artist Banksy took a break yesterday from his month-long residency in New York, citing "police activity" as the reason why he didn't paint something beautiful on a random city surface.

Some people wondered if the hiatus would be (gulp) permanent. But Banksy was back in action today, posting his latest on Instagram. 

For those keeping score at home: Banksy 23, NYPD 1.
