Banksy- “If graffiti changed anything – it would be illegal”
“If graffiti changed anything – it would be illegal”,
New Bansky-style work appears in Clipstone Street, Fitzrovia, London, W1. in the early hours of Monday morning.
Security guard Raymond Hill, 37, who works nearby, said: “It wasn’t there on Sunday night, and then it was there when I started my shift at 6am on Monday morning. There’s a petrol station right round the corner and the area’s always pretty busy, so I’m surprised no one noticed him doing it.”
This is the second large work by Banksy to have appeared in Fitzrovia and in the part of the neighbourhood under the authority of Westminster City Council. A previous artwork — One Nation Under CCTV — was removed at the insistence of the Council after it decided it that it shouldn’t have been created without planning permission.
