Just walked round by Southwark Cathedral under London Bridge by The Mughouse and there appears to be a Banksy bit of art. I couldn't see if it was signed as there was a van in the way. It looked a bit messy to be one of his. Has anyone else seen it?

I saw it being done last Sunday afternoon.

Unless the elusive Bansky is a tall black woman with an afro, which I don't think he is, then it's not a Banksy.

Don't think he's round these parts as much as he used to be. Commands too much!

There's a cracking bit of graffiti on Mill Street, by the house boats on the Thames. I'm into street art, especially paintings of characters, and this seems to be the genuine Banksy article.
I hope someone doesn't try and steal it, as it's painted on the river wall, which obviously acted as a flood defense prior to becoming an urban gallery.

Reader Patrick Collins emailed an image of the Bermondsey Wall West work to me the other day:

Gosh what's the MATTER with people. Ruddy vandals.

Can I ask what he has on the end of the fishing line? Street art by its nature is temporary, the pleasure is in having seen it prior to removal and evermore knowing it existed once removed.

Looks like a syringe to me.

If only it was. There's so much bad stuff around. Yet a (possible) Banksy appears and it's whitewashed within days. Most of the street art you see is the equivalent of a cat marking its territory.
