Banksy’s Biggest Piece Yet

Banksy is undoubtly one of the most talked about graffiti artist of today, where his work is seen around the globe in some of the most unexpected locations. His stencil work often carries an alternative message that tweaks the ideologies of the modern society. Just last week we saw some of his work appear in London and it seems as though he has been busy at work once again and has created what appears to be one of his biggest piece of art yet.

“The secretive graffiti artist managed to erect three storeys of scaffolding behind a security fence despite being watched by a CCTV camera.Then, during darkness and hidden behind a sheet of polythene, he painted this comment on ‘Big Brother’ society. ” – Daily Mail (UK)

The message displayed in white paint was “One Nation Under CCTV”, ironically placed right next to a CCTV camera.
Under the message is a Stencil painted image of a young boy on a ladder painting the message while a Police officer is seen taking a photo from a distance with his dog on his side. This is not the first time we’ve seen Banksy’s work with reference to CCTVs, so maybe this message is one for us to think about.
