I ran out in the middle of the street to snap a better photo than this one.

Haven't we had days like this?

this piece is featured in banksy's film, 'exit through the gift shop'. theres video of him spraying it, it's cool to see the biggest street artist in the world do his thing, you should check the film out if you already haven't.
great photo man.

im going to try really hard to go back, i wonder if theres a way to get a strait on photo...
like climb the building or something, banksy had to get up there somehow....right? o,o;

True though I don't know if that would be easy to do unless you had a ladder... and chances are since it's a high traffic area, you'd be spotted quickly.

i think it had an ally next to it though, i might be able to get up without being seen.

Too cool! I drove by a beautiful piece with a Buddha and a sunrise, it was quite striking. By the time I turned back around, I couldn't find it again - it was quite disappointed.

lots of stuff gets sprayed over out there. That rat had been up there for a long time, I believe my brother said no one was willing to get up there and spray over it. Unfortuantly the day he took me on the tour was the day I forgot my camera. There was so much great art that I wish I could see again on those streets, but its probably all gone by now. Ever see the I beat Anorexia fat kid?

It's a great piece, I'm glad no one has yet.

And no, I've not seen that one.
