Banksy – Causing a stir again

Last February under the cover of the night, Banksy’s ‘Slave Labour’ was taken from the Poundland wall in Wood Green much to the shock of London and the world.

It became a bit of a ‘whodunnit’ with everyone from newspapers, art critics and the general public guessing who had stolen the latest Banksy. It also sparked the argument that now not even street art is safe.

It emerged over night in Miami and was due to be auctioned for a substantial $700,000. After much public uproar from Haringey Council it was removed at the last second. The N22 Banksy was safe…

Mark June 2 in your calendar because this Banksy is back in London, just not on the Poundland wall. Instead it has taken up residence in the London Film Museum in Covent Garden ready for another auction.

Do you think public art like this should be left? We think so, it’s one of the many reasons to visit London, especially the likes of Brick Lane where street art thrives. Bansky created this mural as a statement and a statement for the public no less, if he wanted it to be bought by an art dealer he’d have gone and sprayed it on a wall in Belgravia!
