NEW YORK — Banksy revealed his latest street art today on the roll-down security gate at Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club in Hell’s Kitchen.

The renowned street artist captioned the new piece, "Waiting in vain ... at the door of the club," for his “Better Out Than In” project in New York.

His work on the Hustler Club shows a cross-legged and slouching lovelorn loser, holding a bouquet of red flowers with petals falling to the ground.

The British street artist apparently struck the gentlemen's club on Wednesday when “police activity” interrupted his month-long New York residency, according to his website.

On Wednesday, rumors flew that Banksy and two assistants had been busted by police in Brooklyn, just south of where Banksy painted a geisha graffiti unveiled last week.
