Banksy the sprayer



It's hard to convey the menace in this alleyway - one of the very few that must feel as they did a century ago. You see the image of Jack the Ripper and that red BLOOD - until you realise that it's a spray can that is being wielded, not a knife. This is Banksy at his best.

Banksy? Who's that?

Oh.

Very cool Banksy there. Where did you find it?

Marvellous piece of artwork. Haunting symbolism, very scary.

Big Banksy fan m'self, although not seen this one in the flesh. Where is it sprayed?

I love this shot!

Sorry I've been a bit quiet folks - otherwise occupied.

Scouter, thanks for putting a link in - Banksy has featured once or twice before and I was getting lazy.

Sheymouse, Ginnie, it is in an unmarked (and spooky) lane off Artillery Passage

Nice catch.

It's very good. Scared the life out of me when I stumbled across it.

It's not a Banksy, but I can't remember who did do it.

Bit of Googling should do it.

Matt's right, it's not Banksy, it's by Mantis.
