The BBC has published a photo that is believed to be the elusive graffiti artist Banksy.
I found it interesting that Banksy works in daylight, with an assistant and scaffolding (if this is a real photo of the artist). I found it more romantic thinking of the artist working alone, at night, and maybe using a ladder if he had to reach up a little higher.
This work is being done on a building in Tower Hamlets (UK), where the Council has made the decision to paint over Banksy works. In the BBC report, a Tower Hamlets council spokesman said “In this case, Banksy has sought permission from the owners of the privately-owned building for his latest work. We do however need to look at the issue of the yellow lines as we have a legal obligation to reinstate the bit of the double yellow lines which has been painted out.” BBC (the finished work can be seen on the BBC site.. it’s quite interesting)
