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.
