Banksy Goes to the Olympics street art olympics London graffiti

So apparently there has been a recent crackdown on graffiti artists prior to the 2012 Olympics in London. Coincidentally it doesn’t involve the world’s most famous street artist. Here are 2 new pieces by “Team Banksy“, featuring his personal take on the games. I think this feeds more into my idea that Banksy has gone corporate. There’s also a great article over at The Atlantic Wire about Banksy and the politics of street art during the 2012 Olympic Games.
