Looks like Bansky has arrived in my backyard! This latest piece was seen on La Brea & 4th and comes to us as he prepares for the premiere of his documentary, Exit Through The Gift Shop, in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

Not sure if people knew that the balloon animal represents one of Jeff Koons' work which is over at the LACMA.

Hyperallergic intern & contributor Tim McCool figured out Banksy’s joke in his Koons-related stencil:

"There’s a Koons quote: “Abstraction and luxury are the guard dogs of the upper class.” So Banksy is accusing Koons’ work of being in the same category of unintelligible, abstract, and ludicrously expensive art. That’s as far as I am conceptually on this, haha."

A friendly jab or a harsh slap? You decide. (Too bad it's gone!)

"JetSet Graffiti has confirmed through a business partner of Banksy’s that it was the infamous Doug Christmas of Ace Gallery in Los Angeles that organized the removal and impending unauthorized sale of the artwork.

Famous for treating his bills as if they didn’t exist; Since 1976, Christmas has been sued 55 times by artists, other dealers and art collectors, according to a profile in 2009 in the LA Weekly." via animal new york
