While city authorities are arresting and banning street artists from Olimpics venues, the notorious Banksy created two new stencils and posted them on his personal site on Monday. Banksy’s latest work “Hackney Welcomes the Olympics” shows an athlete throwing a missile-shaped javelin. Another graffiti piece called “Going for Mould” shows a pole vaulter jumping over a fence on to a tatty mattress.
“Will London really erase Banksy’s new Olympics art?” asks Atlantic Wire. What about you? Do you think they should? Meanwhile, I’m looking forward to seeing more Olympic Graffiti by Banksy.
