Banksy

Another Banksy in the Mission District of San Francisco, Sycamore Street and Mission.

Thought this one had a nice ironic sense of humor.

This building owner (unlike the one on Valencia) painted over all the graffiti on the building except this one.

Interestingly the face has been changed. Possibly an attempt to restore it?

Now that is ironic - restoration of graffiti art. I wonder if i could get a job restoring graffiti?

Check out this link and you will see the original face.

I think this face is more in style with the 'painting' than the original. Still very original.
John Eagle: I just wonder what the pay is for graffiti retouching? tongue

Considering that some graffiti have been 'taken' down and actually sold in art gallery for thousands of dollars I think the owner is mabye thinking in that direction. I have to see this is a very interesting piece of graffiti. I like it.
John Eagle: Yeah, my though was to get a Sawzall and cut one of these out of a building and then sell it. tongue

I like Banksy's work because it is ironic, humorous and usually has some sort of social commentary.
