Banksy CND Canvas


This work by renowned graffiti artist Banksy formed part of Brian Haw's anti war protest in Parliament Square until it was removed by police in late May. I was lucky that I took this picture when I did.

I have posted more photos of the Brian Haw protest on Plant Porn and Pussycats (see sidebar)

Really creative work. It could go in a museum.

What nobody is supposed to know Jams, is that these are undercover agents for Mercedes Benz; sent out on a covert mission to transform all Peace symbols into Mercedes logos.

Great anti-war poster. Somehow the military during hostilities can assert that only their speech is patriotic or rational. This poster shows them wiping out any dissenting opinion. A timely message indeed.

Quite true Fraser, I think Banksy hit the mark with his work.

Ah mullet, I am not good with a spray can at all!

Bansky is really talented and this is one of his best works I have seen. Who needs a museum when you have the streets. Have you ever been to:
