Photo of the day: Banksy's Twin Towers memorial

The 15th installation of the British artist’s NYC street takeover was revealed today via Instagram—and it’s much more serious than his previous works.

This morning, British wall-sprayer Banksy—who is in the midst of a monthlong pop-up residency in NYC—released his newest work via Instagram. And instead of the trickster's usual clever shenanigans, like selling his work for $60 in Central Park, this time the subject matter is a little more serious: As you can see, the picture depicts the Twin Towers, one of which is sprouting a scorched chrysanthemum flower. According to his post, the striking painting is somewhere in Tribeca. Have you found it yet?
