Banksy Brick Vent Radio
Could this be the first Banksy to get planning permission
Location: Gillett Square, Dalston, London, SE1
Description: The owner of the building here is the first to apply for planning permission to keep their Banksy mural.
Note the clever use of a brick air vent to form the radio speaker and the super over sized clothes and feet shape.
Appearing in February 2009, its the first work attributed to Banksy since October last year and the first in the UK since the anonymous artist painted the words 'One Nation Under CCTV' in central London in April 2008.
