some idiots have gone and defaced on of banksy‘s most well-known pieces in bristol, uk. the mural features a naked lover hanging out a window as an angry husband returns home.
i suppose you could argue that banksy invites the reaction by working in the medium that he does, and the paint-balloons were simply defacement of another technical ‘defacement’.
but banksy is art, illegal or not. paint splatters, his work is not. after this piece appeared in bristol in 2006, the city council ran a public vote about whether to keep the mural. 93% of people voted for the banksy to remain.
shame on these douchebags. bras and ranties tsk tsk.
