    Boy Hammers Girl


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     British street artist Banksy has angered some New Yorkers recently because of his essay criticizing the design of One World Trade Center, which he published on his site after the New York Times declined to publish his op-ed. And, the artist may have overstayed his welcome in New York City with his current project creating graffiti and other art installations around the city each day for a month. One of these creations inspired iReporter Danny Daly to visit this week. He took his 7-year-old daughter, Niamh Ann, to see one of the new paintings on 79th Street close to Broadway on the upper east side of Manhattan.

    She rested her head on the fire hydrant as her father snapped a photo. Her dad says she “found it amusing to be involved and pretend the boy in the silhouette was going to hit her.” While he had fun creating his twist on Banksy, Daly says he is not a fan of the artist. “I am not in favor of [guerilla] style graffiti but I know I am being hypocritical promoting it by taking a photograph. This type of art only tempts more "artists" to display their art anywhere they like, which is appalling,” he said.
