Banksy is a pseudonymous England-based (Bristol-born) graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter. His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti done in a distinctive stencilling technique. Such artistic works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world.
I thought both of these were done by him, but actually the 1st one is done by Melbourne-based street artist Meek, who was exposed to Banksy's art while working in London. The 2nd one was done in London's Clerkenwell area, the words 'Old Skool' additionaly added.It has occured to me once before, that it would be so cool to do a Banksy tour in England. I've been to London so many times and failed to look for it - next time!
Thanks to Amanda from the netherlands and Jacqueline from the UK :)
