Banksy's Heir?



Following on the graffiti theme from yesterday, over the last few weeks, stencil graffiti has been popping up around London signed "Cartrain". Maybe it is Banksy, maybe just in his style. This one is over an old Banksy that was cleaned off on the South Bank, by Blackfriars Bridge. I'll keep an eye out, see what happens, and report back to you.

This shot taken on a camera phone (LG Shine) that the guys at LG lent me to try out.

This is GREAT! Can you post more pictures when you see some? This is one creative man/woman...
What do you think the circular-tpye-thing is on the left?

Good old Banksy!

I am still trying to put the picture of missing UK little girl Madeleine's face into the minds of many, Ham, if your readers would pop over to Cheltenham to have a look i'd be grateful. You never know she could be in your road or mine by now. We can all look! Thanks.

...just been out across the road and found two "Cartrains" both with a hawk logo & the name but nout else...I think they've been there for a while.

Shall keep my eyes peeled for more.

Yes, I've been told that he's from Leyonstone. There's a name on a wall in Wanstead, too.

There's a great article about Banksy in this week's New Yorker.

Interesting & ironic how he's rewritten the rules on ART. The world's first anonymous artist with a PR firm!

look guys,
cartrains a good friend of mine and no hes not banksy but a like minded individual he is a street artist not a vandal and put blair and bush in there place via the medium of pen, while other children are out knifing each other
the ones targeted by the police are the graffiti ARTISTS, not the violent little shites out there, the ones of us hu express ourselves freely,
so yer think about that
