New Banksy Street Art - 'TOX' in Camden

Banksy — 'TOX' A new piece of Banksy street art appeared on the artists website early this morning and within hours the location of the new stencil street art work had been leaked online. Located in Camden Town, London which is also home to 26-year-old graffiti artist/tagger TOX who is referenced in this new Street Art Banksy work. The notorious tagger was recently convicted of criminal damage at Blackfriars Crown Court, London.

Hookedblog headed over to Jeffrey Street in Camden ( the location of this Banksy Graffiti piece) this afternoon to grab some photographs of the new Banksy street art piece before it's defacement/destruction/ or removal. It wasn't long before a white van pulled and a measuring tape was out with workers taking dimensions of the stencil piece. The building owners turned up shortly after and as we left work had begun on boarding up the Banksy TOX piece until such time as they could find a piece of perspex large enough to cover/protect the stencil.

UPDATE: It looks like the boards have now been removed and the Banksy stencil piece has been covered in perspex.

Maybe we'll see more Banksy in London on the coming days...But to be honest I am not surprised that the wall owner wanted to take away soon as possible considering how much he'll make by selling to the millionaires collectors...

Having made an appearance the last few years it is likely that Banksy will be at the Glastonbury Festival for the next few days rather than in London!
