The Real Banksy
This is exactly what it looks like - a bloke throwing a javelin, but instead of a javelin it’s a missile. What’s funny is that there is actually a kind of missle called a javelin… however this isn’t one. This is a commentary on the fact that the British government has put missiles on tower blocks in East London.

However… it’s also got a deeper meaning. Can you guess what it is?

Here’s the first of my “Olypmics” pieces. I’ve done four in all - some have been found already, and some haven’t. I’ll be revealing them all here on Tumblr.
The Olympics is a bit of an odd one isn’t it? I was rubbish at sports as a lad, always picked last for the teams. One time I forgot my PE kit and Mr. Sandy made me play in my tight white y-fronts.
Everyone laughed and called me pantsman, although the joke was on them a couple of years later when he got done for some kind of incident that happened when he was still a Scoutmaster. Bit of an odd bloke that one.

This wasn’t me. I think this chap might be faking my work as a publicity stunt for his new gallery, but that’s fine. The work he’s doing with that Oriental - am I allowed to say Oriental? You never know these days. Anyway, the work he’s doing with that Chinese feller is quite nice, always good to see artists from other cultures getting some support in the United Kingdom of Bonus! (I’m referring to banker’s bonuses of course).

This is a brand new piece just off Turnpike Lane. People are asking if this was me… yes it was!
This is called mixed media, when you do a street picture but it actually ties into something physical. You might have seen my ringing tap, which was a rather cheeky pun on the phone hacking scandal.
What I’ve done here is take a child labourer and have them sewing the bunting for the Royal Jubilee. This is a “wry commentary” on the way everything is made overseas these days and also a reminder of the bad things we did in the days of the British Empire. It’s very ironic.

Here’s the thing: the cops, the old bill, the fuzz, them popo, whatever you like to call them, they’re the biggest thugs of all. They’re hoodlums in uniform! Really that’s what this piece is all about.
This car-clamping, ticket-giving, work-disrupting, policeman has been exposed as the public nuisance he is! In fact under the terms of the Law of Nuisance they should all be tried, and then chased and hunted throughout the night (not me!)

What I’ve done here is paint someone doing a street picture - ironic because I do street pictures myself - but instead of a hooded youth… it’s an old lady!
To extend the metaphor I took the slogan “keep Britain tidy” and use that instead of something rude. Basically, old ladies do think that slogan is good so that bit is accurate, but also it’s a commentary on how graffiti is seen as untidy when actually it’s often some of the cleverest “advertising” out there! You’ll laugh when you get it.

This is John Travolta and a black feller. What I’ve done here is change their guns for bananas, more to amuse myself than anything else!
