Banksy, the mysterious street artist has once again appeared before the public. This time, however, he took a novel approach: he posted a video project on his Instagram profile featuring him decorating one of the carriages of the London Underground..
In his latest street art, the otherwise also quite expressive artist covering socially sensitive issues called his trademark rats to help raise awareness to the important role of social distancing and wearing masks in the fight against the coronavirus.
In the video, he appears in a protective equipment covering his entire body and is doing his thing calmly, while the other passengers don’t really understand what is going on exactly either. He ends his video with a telling quote:
I get lockdown, but I get up again.
