Banksy interprets the Olympics

Banksy interprets the Olympics - Javelin Missle

Banksy interprets the Olympics - Pole Vault Escape

With the London Olympics starting on Friday I suppose it was only a matter of time before we started seeing new pieces from Banksy popping up. The first is a javelin thrower who’s a bit better armed than usual, and the second a pole vaulter trying to make his escape. Every time I see his work I’m still amazed at how technically talented he is, despite what you think of his message. His proportions and compositions are always spot on. I’m fairly certain these were uploaded only this morning, hopefully we’ll he’ll post some more pieces as the Olympics continue.
