Mobile Lovers

Picturing England

This week a new piece by street artist Banksy appeared on a wall near the Broad Plain Boys’ Club in Bristol. Banksy has declared the piece as his work on his website, and the owners of the Boys’ Club decided it must be a gift to them and took it down straight away to display in their club until it could be sold. However, the piece known as ‘Mobile Lovers’ was handed over to the police on Wednesday night and is now on display in the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery.

I don’t approve of the piece being taken down or being on display in the museum, and strongly believe it should have been left on the street where it belongs. However, I couldn’t not go and see it so I took myself down to the museum today.
