I've been informed that the stencil street-art is Banksy.

I'm starting to lean toward Blek Le Rat or another artist. But I'm no expert.

3/18: Mark Weatherscame across another shot of this stencil and found out it's an image of Sri Aurobindo. Thanks, Mark!

    Yeah, Mark, hard to say. But very possible, since this is on a street (and a block) where all the great graff and tag artists have stuff up (and it's conveniently near all the big downtown galleries). But it could be another artist. I'll keep trying to find out.

    i say doubtful that its banksy too (but you're right... hard to say with any certainty one way or another), but i love the photograph. i love seeing the stencil on the white wall, then the pigeon wallking by SLAYS me.
