Graffiti in Subway – level 2
Banksy is a world-known British street artist and political activist; however, nobody knows his real name. Banksy started to be active in the 1990s, and in his work, he often comments on political and social problems.
Last week, he sprayed graffiti in a London subway. He wanted to support people during the coronavirus pandemic, and to remind them that they must wear masks in public transport. However, a cleaning crew cleaned Banksy´s work before he posted it on his Instagram account.
In London, people must wear masks when they use public transport. Officials said that they welcomed Banksy´s support. However, they will find a more suitable place where he can do his work.
