Yesterday evening, the grandfather of Bronx graffiti, Cope2, posted a photo on Twitter, which appears to be a collaboration between himself and Banksy in the South Bronx.

Banksy May Have Collaborated With Cope2 On An Anti-NYPD Piece

The work features a stenciled pig with graffiti writing that reads “NYPD!” and Cope2’s tag above.

This jab at the New York police seems to be in response to the fact that the NYPD is out to get Banksy for vandalizing the city during his month-long artist’s residency in the city, Better Out Than In.

Cope2’s Twitter post could be seen here.
