An art terrorist? A political statement/ A drunk? Or just a twat? Either way the new Liverpool Banksy that has turned up on the side of a building on Rumford Street – off Tithebarn Street – has been somewhat altered by a rather underwhelming addition.
The picture of a biplane looping the loop to draw a heart with its vapour trails (chemtrails?) now has the words ‘Bank”sy 4 Robbo’ (sic) intertwined among the white heart. The last ‘o’ is a CND symbol.
Ho hum. Live by the sword and all that. Your thoughts?
Edit: Turns out the defacing might have been done by a follower of Banksy’s rival King Robbo, who had a bit of a graffiti war with Banksy back in the day. Robbo himself is currently in a coma, but has many spraypaint-wielding sympathisers across the globe.
