Banksy's Latest Artwork On Coronavirus Was Removed From The London Underground

Love me some Banksy. The distinguished and enigmatic artist Banksy, posted an Instagram video of him producing his artwork on a London Underground train. The artwork displayed the importance of wearing masks during the global pandemic. His familiar rats were sporadically displayed across the train carriage walls and doors. The London Underground cited a strict anti-graffiti policy for the removal of the artwork. However, message was powerful and it is unfortunate that it was removed from the train.

Banksy is an England-based street artist who is rebound for his political and satirical street art. His arts popularity has only been compounded by his anonymity as the artist’s identity remains unconfirmed.

The video titled “If you don’t mask – you dont get” already has 3.4 million views a day after its release on Tuesday. The video shows Banksy walking into the train, dressed in a white boiler suit, orange vest with the message “Stay Safe”, hat, mask and goggles. Some of the mask-less rats were projecting green paint across the inside windows of the train. Some of the other rats were carrying hand sanitizer, wearing masks, or even using them as para-shoots.

The ending of the video showed a wall painted with the phrase “I get locked down but I get up again.” Then when the doors closed, another message read, “But I get up again,” with one rat reaching up to another. As the messages become visible in the video, Chumbawumba’s 1997 hit “Tubthumping” played in the background.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful
    than ever before. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the long run and
    it’s time to be happy. I have learn this put up and if I could I desire to counsel you some attention-grabbing issues or tips.

  2. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got
    an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
