Big Brother is Watching by Irina Chuckowree

I was going through my photo archive and stumbled upon this shot of Banksy’s graffiti I took years ago in central London. Decided that I should visit the location again and re-shoot this awesome work of street art. Unfortunately, after a quick search on the internet, I discovered that some d***head in a high official position ordered to paint over the valuable artwork. The order came shortly after the election of the new Coalition governemnt – coincidence?
The works of Banksy are sold for hundreds thousands of pounds, and the best decision someone made was to paint one over!
So, here you go: One Nation Under CCTV as you will never see it again.

    This would also make an excellent T shirt design, Irina. Those wearing it could be easily spotted by CCTV and dealt with in the re-programming camps if they are a cynic – or rewarded if they are a believer. :)george

  • lol! yes, the t-shirt is in the making :)
    I was really sad to learn that this awesome street artwork no longer exists… I’m a big Banksy fan. His works are so controversial and mind-blowing! If you wish just search for Banksy images to enjoy his art.
