Banksy’s Work Is Destroyed. Bloody People With White Paint!

Hi,

.

It seems that Banksy, the Bristol born mysterious and iconic graffiti artist is not perhaps as well known in some parts of our society as we might have supposed that he was.

.

Banksy at Bristol City Museum. 2009.
.

.

.

In his hometown there are many familiar and well loved graffiti images stencilled about the place….like the ‘Gorilla In A Pink Mask’  images.

.

On Fishponds Road there is a well known building which used too be the ‘North Bristol Social Club’.

.

This has now become a Muslim Cultural Centre, and Saeed Ahmed decided that he would tidy it up a bit by removing the unsightly graffiti on the walls by the vigorous application of bright white paint….all over the very popular artwork.

.

Local people who then passed by were saddened to discover that the well-loved and cheering gorilla image was gone.

.

The unknowing perpetrator of the art crime has now asked the Director of the International Fine Art Conservation Studios to help him reveal the valuable artwork once more.

Mr. Pelter is going to give it his best try.

.

Let us hope that all of the other admired works by Banksy, such as Love Cheat and Police Sniper And Boy are kept safe from the ‘people who tidy up’.

.

I suppose that it could have been worse though…. he could have used magnolia paint!!!

.

Banksey leaves wonderful surprises for the public and definitely brightens their days.
