Banksy mural destroyed by funhaters

September 7, 2009

Ugh, this is horrible: link

A city clean-up crew laughs while they illegally paint over a famous and valuable Banksy piece as the owner of the building cries and begs them to stop.  Then the city was like, oops, our mistake…heh.

I get that what Banksy does is illegal, blah blah blah, but given these two options, which would you prefer to have in your city – the before or the after? (image after the jump)

Banksy is a more effective graffiti deterrent than…a blank black wall. Duh.

    Thanks and I quite agree! We have a secret street artist in Holland too – not quite Banksy, but his sculptures are well worth keeping and the city values them a lot. Richard
