Graffiti in Subway – level 1

21-07-2020 07:00

Banksy is a British street artist. In his art, he says what he thinks about politics and society. He does a lot of work. Many people around the world know him. However, nobody knows his real name.

Last week, Banksy sprays graffiti in a London subway. Banksy’s idea is to help people during the coronavirus pandemic. People in London must wear face masks in public transport. Banksy wants people to remember this rule.

However, it is not legal to spray graffiti in the London subway. Cleaners clean the graffiti quickly. Cleaners do not know that the graffiti is Banksy’s work. Officials welcome Banksy’s help during the coronavirus pandemic. Officials will find a better place. Banksy can do his work there.

Difficult words: society (a large group of people who have similar ideas and who live in the same place), spray graffiti (to write or draw on walls, houses, and other things with paint that comes out of a can), pandemic (a disease that makes people sick all over the world), public transport (the buses and trains that people use in towns and cities).http://spray+graffiti
