has anyone seen the new banksy at the corner of The grange opp the Alaska Building? I cycled past it saturday and there were a few people milling about taking photos.
Its a hoodie guy with a Keith Haring yapping dog on a lease.
Then I cycled past this morning and southwark council had put up a prosecution for graffiti sign (charming sense of priority when our street lamps havent worked for months) and a local had done a massive tag next to it.
I've walked past this several times since first seeing it on Saturday and I'd guesss it's a copycat effort. The dog doesn't look like something Banksy would do - too quick and sharply defined. However, the chap looks more like something he would come up with so I would guess it is a copycat with his/(her?) own style as well. I'd have thought that Grange Road is an odd place for Banksy to be now too, given his fame.
Interesting addition to the immediate neightbourhood, nonetheless.
