Have You Had a Banksy in Your Area?

Ask a Question

The latest Banksy in Lowestoft has been vandalised after the artist confirmed it was genuine. Having a Banksy is a great draw for tourists and locals a like, the local council have already employed a restorer.

Thinking about it the last artwork I went to see was the Port Talbot's Banksy back in Dec 2018

I thought that about Taibach, it was in a small back street. Somewhere I had never been.

But can you image waking up to discover one painted on your garage! When it sold they had to dismantle it.

Yes, but when they covered it with perspex sheeting to protect the artwork the paint started to badly crack and peel. In a relatively short space of time it looked in a terrible state. The building it was on has since been demolished to make way for expensive flats. I don't know if they saved the work. It may have been too badly damaged for restoration. It would simply end up being more of a copy than the real thing.

I was going to say no but I did a quick check on Google to be sure and turns out Banksy has done a piece of artwork here in the jewellery quarter area of Birmingham.. I had no idea and I have even worked in the area.

I wonder who Banksy is 🤔

That's part of his appeal as no one knows, but where does he get his £ from ?
