Banksy fue nombrado por los Webby Awards como la “persona de año” gracias a la residencia que hizo en Nueva York el año pasado titulada “Better Out Than In”; como era de esperarse el artista no hizo su aparición en la entrega de premios pero mandó un mensaje, les dejo el video del momento.

Asi mismo, para presentar el proyecto hicieron un buen video (en forma de “case study”) donde se recapitula todo lo sucedido duranate el mes de octubre del año pasado en la gran manzana.

The Webby Awards is proud to honor Banksy as Person of the Year for his “Better Out Than In” show in New York City this past October. Though the artworks themselves were primarily painted or staged on physical objects in New York, the true showcase took place on screens across the world. The curiosity and intrigue was palpable across all forms of digital media. 350,000 people followed Banksy’s one-month, one-picture-a-day Instagram account. Particular pieces delved even deeper, leading viewers from Instagram to digital works on his (now bare) website. New Yorkers followed the roving exhibit on Foursquare and posted photos and videos to Tumblr, Vine, YouTube, and Twitter (where #banksy was used over 38,000 times during the month), and appreciating fans around the world tuned in. Not many people would make a logical connection between graffiti and the Internet, but Banksy not only showed the world what that looks like, but he made people care about it, too. For providing a glimpse into the potential future of art on the Web, Banksy truly deserves to be named Webby Person of the Year.
