Graffiti in Subway – level 3
A world-renowned street artist named Banksy created a new coronavirus-inspired artwork on the London Underground.
The piece ´If You Don´t Mask, You Don´t Get´ was painted inside a Circle line carriage, and it encouraged people to wear face coverings while on public transport.
However, by the time Banksy unveiled the work on his Instagram account, it had already been removed by Transport for London cleaning crew, in line with its strict anti-graffiti policy. Many commuters, regard graffiti as something threatening and unwelcoming, and in the current atmosphere of the coronavirus pandemic, commuters are happy that the cleaners did their job quickly.
All public transport users in London must wear a face covering, and Transport of London said that it appreciated Banksy´s effort to encourage people to do so. It added that Banksy would get a chance to do a new version of his message in a suitable location.
