Banksy Up the Wall



Banksy Up the Wall

This is where Banksy was first caught in the act.

Location: Pollard Street, Bethnal Green, London

Description: This was the work that almost unveiled who Banksy actually was, as a passer by took pics of the artist painting this wall in Bethnal Green with this striking and inventive design.

It's been a little defaced since and lines amended and re-applied, but it's got all the hallmarks of classic Banksy - simple theme amusingly and unusually applied.
