2012 London Olympics Street Art / Banksy (UPDATE)


Share post:

Banksy has recently revealed two new works of street art “inspired” by the 2012 London Olympics. There are two pieces. One features an Olympic javelin thrower holding a missile and the second piece depicts a pole-vaulter jumping over a barbed wire and chain link fence onto a discarded mattress. It is classic Banksy urban-socio subversive commentary.


UPDATE: There is allegedly a third Banksy piece. It’s of a hooded figure making off with the red ring from the Olympic symbols. I’m not buying it. The subversive Banksy message is there but the style is slightly off. Also, the piece hasn’t been documented on his siteSPOILER: Have you ever wondered what Banksy looked like? Well, there is a purported shot of a man named Robert Banks who is supposed to be the infamous street artist. Both of these pics are at the end.
