Banksy 'Quotes' Plato In His 8th Work In New York City

Julie Zeveloff

For the eighth work in his month-long series "Better Out Than In," graffiti artist Banksy has painted a fake quote attributed to the Greek philosopher Plato on a blue door in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

The quote? " I  have  a  theory  that  you can make any sentence seem profound  by  writing  the name of a  dead philosopher  at the  end  of it."

The mural is located at  266-270 Freeman Street in Greenpoint, according to StreetArtNews.

Yesterday the artist unveiled a "broken hearted" balloon in Red Hook:
