Bye Bye Banksy

The latest Banksy piece that showed up down on The Grange, Southwark, a collaboration with Kieth Haring, was boarded up the next day by the building’s owner… but not before Maggie Jones got in one last sneaky shot.

Just about to be bordered up!

The man who boarded it up told Maggie he was covering it to protect it because he is a Banksy fan and an artist himself. In about one year from now, the building is set to be demolished and he is hoping to salvage this piece of wall.
