What a great find, such a quirky piece of graffiti – the surrounding textures and colours really enhance the image – love it :)
We had a photo walk through Melbourne’s laneways in 2008. Because this is so lovely and is by the famous Banksy of the UK, it had a transparent shield to protect it. Unfortunately someone still managed to pour paint down behind the shield so it is no longer there.
excellent, but unreal the it no longer exists
Thanks Alan. Yes, I guess that is why I have put it up here, to honour it.
What a shame, but lovely capture anyway :))
Thanks Colleen. It is a shame.
amazing Jean…so much to think about on this shot.
This is so cool!
Love banksy and love the way you’ve framed this. Please consider submitting to StreetArtThanks,Val :-)
Thanks Val, I will do so!
Great spot and capture
It was a great location for it – untilIt was destroyed! Thanks Peter.
so good that you captured this since it now only exists here!
Thanks Marion. I hope many others captured it too, as the Melbourne laneways are popular with photographers. Jean
Great find !
