Dalston Banksy Trashed

Banksy

Hookedblog traveled up to Dalston's Gillett Square in East London today to snap one of the newest street art stencil work from British street artists Banksy.

Banksy Artwork Damaged

Having been up on the streets of East London for less than a week, pictured above is what we found this afternoon when we visited the locations to see the new Banksy street art. The stenciled piece had been heavily tagged up with the words  " God, Love, Not Money" spray-painted over the face of the Banksy artwork.

Hackney Co-operative Developments, who owns the leasehold of the building, were set to take legal action to stop the council cleaning it off the wall. It is now very likely that this will now be removed now that it has been tagged up. While this must be one of the shortest-lived Banksy street pieces, some are happy to see it tagged up rather than ending up behind some perspex sheet as is so common with many of his latest street pieces these days.
