The world-famous street artist, Banksy, tried to do his best to encourage the people of London to wear their masks by stencilling his signature rats on a London underground train… but the cleaners would have none of it.
According to the BBC, Transport For London, the company in charge of the underground train service said the work, called If You Don’t Mask, You Don’t Get, was removed “some days ago” in line with its “strict anti-graffiti policy”. The cleaners were unaware that it was the artist’s work.
Banksy posted a video to Instagram of what fans are to believe is the man himself doing his thing while the train is in operation.
It seems as if the location more than the artwork is what’s currently dividing the people of London’s opinions on the artist’s latest work.
Banksy is known worldwide for his often satirical graffiti artwork, but he is yet to be identified. He is known to do his work at night and is always disguised, even though some fans believe that he is 47-year old Robin Gunningham from Bristol, England.
His work is seemed as gorilla art as it is often done on private or government owned property.
Have a look at the video posted by the artist to his Instagram account:
