banksy #2 @ old street
It’s been a while. Sorry. I’d like to say I was off finding a cure for cancer but the reality is far more mundane. I was working. But it’s good to be back. This pieceÂ is located in a parking lot and is visible from across the road, at the tail end of my canal walk, just off Hoxton Square on Old Street. I like that Banksy likes rats. Unfortunately rats receive a lot of bad press.Â Even though they are a lot like mice, except bigger, dirtier and carry the kinds of diseases thatÂ canÂ kill you. But we can’t just love the cute ones, can we? We must love all. Even the sickly ones.Â Besides there are more rats than humans, andÂ if you don’t at least try to do good by them they might rise up and take over.
