Its a few weeks on from Banksys attack on LA. He didnt win the Oscar and nearly all traces of him have been erased. First the pieces where stolen or taken out of the walls. Then some where painted over………
But one of the saddest stories has to be about the homeless man whos shelter was turned into a ‘piece of art’. It was taken from him to preserve it. He was left without a place to stay…….
Here is a video on Banksy Elephant site showing its removal.
Here is a TMZ.com report link to the first removal…..Click.
Greed has taken over street art and the value of it.
