Banksy decorates a Circle Line train
 
Banksy reminds LU passengers to wear their masks. Amazingly, his elaborate
performance was on a busy in-service train, and was videoed by a
collaborator:

I wonder if that has doubled the value of the S7 carriage?

Or reduced it if like me you think Banksy is nothing more than a ham artist
who got famous for [reasons] with his undergrad art college level stencils.

The cost of an S stock carriage is about £1m. So four Banksy artworks each
have been sold for more than the cost of such a carriage. The highest
priced Banksy fetched more than the cost of a whole S stock train.

Well quite possibly and as Damien Hirst and Tracy Emin have been proving for
decades now - there are plenty of idiots who are willing to be parted from
their money for utter tat. Ditto Banksys. But given he uses stencils he can
recreate his "works" in seconds anywhere. Perhaps LU should have got him to
stencil some A, D and C stocks before they went to the scappers.

He is a bit of a Robin Hood figure though who by skilful timing and
choosing of subjects has managed to progress from a graffiti vandal to folk
hero.
Just hope we don’t see copycats who. think it okay to start daubing
messages inside vehicles because they think it has become socially
acceptable .can just imagine the furore when someone daubs Black Lives
Matter in a non artistic manner and it gets cleaned off because the mark
resembles more the
vomit resembling mess seen on Railway infrastructure rather than anything
artistic.

It appears TFW have done the correct thing and got rid of it:-

That's very generous of TfW. Do they normally clean the graffiti from
London trains, or only if the artist is famous? Or were they actually
stealing it, and it'll reappear in a Cardiff gallery on a donor Pacer?

The headline on the article must be wrong as well, because it refers to TfL
not TfW. Don’t journalists check anything these days?

The so-called "artist" has committed criminal damage to the train, and
should hopefully be sought, caught & prosecuted by the police. Failure
to do that will only induce others to follow his example.

All scrubbed off and back in service now.
