    Few people in the world can send New Yorkers into a tizzy quite like Banksy can. The elusive artist's NYC residence back in October 2013 attracted widespread media attention, resulting in a crazy scavenger hunt for his original stencils-in-disguise and other works. Many of us checked his homepage daily, breathlessly anticipating his next pop-up project.

    Did you somehow miss out on the month-long art watch? Look no further than writer and photographer Ray Mock's new book Banksy in New York. The tome brings us a piece of the action — no midnight street-wandering required.

Click through for a closer look into the captivating phenomenon. One thing's for sure: We'll be Netflix-ing Exit Through the Gift Shop tonight.
