Whilst waking along the river yesterday i noticed an amazing large mural painted/ graffiti'd under the bridge next to the entrance to Vinopolis. It was called coroprate vandalism or something, and depicted bowler hatted businessmen running rampage and destroying things with champagne bottles, and umbrellas. Can anyone tell me anything more about this?
yes, it's definitely Banksy's work. The one by Vinopolis is called Chequebook Terrorism and isn't that just so appropriate in SE1? Suits, swilling with cash, paying the council so they can build expensive property on our land. Don't know how these rich incomers will feel about the area once the artisits have all left. They'll probably choke on their Starbucks cappucinos - if they notice at all.
Bankside's a good choice too 'cos he only needs to change a couple of letters! Have you seen the guardsman just on the corner by the Clink Musuem - only noticed yesterday that it's a peeing guardsman, and that was because a dog had left a pool right by it just to point it out!
Banksy has also designed some stuff for the www.saveordelete.com website - very cool.
ps did you also see that the large board around the corner from Chequebook Terrorism says it's an official graffiti area? true or false?
I'm trying to get a mural painted on my street in Lambeth. Do you know of anyone who might be able to give me information on the best way to go about this or who might be interested in doing the artwork?
well you could try banksy at his website if you want a slightly political mural. maybe try a local school, or Lambeth College? you may even be able to get funding for a community project - check out London Arts Board
The most irreverent 'Banksy' thus far must be the stencil of Queen Vic (bless 'er) receiving a cunnilingual lesson whilst sat astride a young lady's face. This appeared at The Dogget Pub end of the Blackfriars Bridge underpass last Autumn, but was slowly chipped away by Royalists in time for queues for the Queen Mum show.
