World-renowned street artist Banksy has returned with a new series of artworks, but this time, not on the facade of a building but inside the compartment of a train.
Banksy is calling his latest collection of drawings ‘If You Don’t Mask, You Don’t Get’, and captioned it as such on Instagram as well.
The artist’s latest artworks encourage the citizens of London to wear a face mask. He shared a video on Instagram, where you see him in protective gear, similar to the ones worn by Transport for London (TfL) workers who are responsible of deep cleaning carriages. He is also wearing a face mask and thick goggles, which are for safety, but also do a good job of keeping his identity hidden.
The artworks mainly consist of his signature rat stenciled in various situations. One is sneezing blue-coloured droplets on a window, other rats are seen scrambling for safety and one uses its face mask as a parachute.
The message behind Banksy’s work was appreciated, but they were later taken down by the TfL department due to their strict anti-graffiti policy.
