Banksy "Snorting Copper" Uncovered

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Yesterday, one of Banksy's older murals was put on display near where it was discovered on Curtain Road, where a lot of building work is currently taking place. The work was discovered and restored over the past months. Due to being out of town for the past two days and recovering today, I was unable to see it. Apparently, it was painted over because it suffered damage. 


The image shows a police man snorting a line of cocaine. The piece has not been reproduced anywhere else, so it is an original. This comes within a couple of weeks of Banksy's collaboration tribute with grafitti-great Basquiat at Barbican, which I covered here.

The work is apparently restored to the floor where it was discovered a decade ago, and that location is at 115 Curtain Road.
