Banksy is a very skilled and popular street artist, covering walls with his satirical works in half of the world, including London. Here are some of his most recent murals.
IF GRAFFITI CHANGED ANYTHING IT WOULD BE ILLEGAL
A few blocks from the British Museum is one of the most famous graffiti of Banksy. In the drawing, the author, at the bottom of the street painting, seems to be a rat, with legs still stained with paint.
THE FALLING SHOPPER
At the end of Conduit Street, in Burton Lane, you will find a disused building in concrete where the falling shopper is painted: a lady who falls from the third floor with a shopping cart. Not surprisingly, the street painting is located right on the frenetic bustle of the shopping streets of Mayfair.
CHOOSE YOUR WEAPON
Take the tube to Green Park, get on the Jubilee Line and get out at Bermondsey. At the intersection between Grange Road and The Grange, a hooded young man keeps on a leash a reproduction of the famous stylized dog created by street artist Keith Haring.
GUARD DOG AND HIS MASTER’S VOICE & DESIGNATED GRAFFITI AREA.
In Shoreditch, one block from Curtain Road, is Cargo, an alternative venue built under a railway bridge, famous for sweet potato fries and metal concerts. Banksy intervened in the backyard with two murals. In Guard Dog and His Master’s Voice, a dog points a bazooka towards a gramophone, symbol of the voice of authority.
In Designated Graffiti Area, a guard is in the company of a poodle which has a bow on its head and a red clown’s nose. The odd couple keep watch on a wall on which there is writing writing, with a royal seal, which declares the area to be at the disposal of street art.
Got some spare time and are a wall -graffiti fanatic?
