Banksy takes NYC by storm with his piece Sirens of the Lambs

British graf­fiti artist, Banksy, com­ments on the hor­rors of the meat indus­try with his recent art piece Sirens of the Lambs in which he sent a slaugh­ter­house trans­port truck full of scream­ing stuffed ani­mals dri­ving around NYC’s meat­pack­ing dis­trict.
A genius idea and a very effec­tive piece of art in our opin­ion here at Oy Vegan.


It’s this type of cre­ativ­ity that makes peo­ple stop and think. Way to go, Banksy!
