Banksy pulled off an audacious stunt to produce what is believed to be his biggest work yet in central London. The secretive graffiti artist managed to erect three storeys of scaffolding behind a security fence despite being watched by a CCTV camera. (Banksy, 2008)
Smug One (aka Sam Bates) is an Australian born street artist based in Glasgow and as you walk the streets of the city it is hard to miss his enormous works of art that often adorn entire gable end walls.
'Graffiti artist Banksy strikes again'. This is a very famous piece of Banksy, I like the way it is political, having a soldier frisked by a member of the public is cool because it is like 'putting the shoe on the other foot sort of thing'. Almost saying' why should the people get searched by police but we cannot search them?' (Banksy, 2007.)
