Banksy creates new art for 2012 Olympics
Banksy, the pseudonymous British street artist whose graffiti is famous for dealing with a wide array of social and political themes, released a new series of wall art in honor of the upcoming 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.
New work from Banksy on the eve of the 2012 Olympics: "It remains to be seen if these two images are just the beginning of a bigger push from the artist as the games get under way later this week and if the graffiti police will actually make good on their promise to power wash away the works that appear pre-games."
