Banksy Wall Graffiti Has Been Vandalized…With A Penis

Nice Move

You know that things are getting a little ridiculous when the police are investigating a criminal perpetrating a crime on a criminal who’s made his living off of that particular crime. I’m, of course, referring to the genius who added a penis to one of Banksy’s more popular graffiti pieces on a wall in Kent, England. The street art previously showed a woman looking down at an empty pedestal, which I can only assume means whatever the fuck your average amateur art critic wants it to. So some enterprising, young graffiti artist wanting to take it to the man (that is most assuredly what Banksy is now) decided to add a phallus to the pedestal. It’s pretty great.

I’m not usually one to take glee in someone’s property being vandalized, but what happened to Banksy just now is nothing more than glorious justice. Look, I think street art is cool, and I actually like a lot of Banksy’s work, but you can’t deny that he spent years ruining the façades of buildings, with owners who wanted them to stay the way they were. The fact that someone has now done the exact same thing to Banksy is much more hilarious than it is unfortunate. The vandal has been vandalized.

Plus, if I’m being honest, I think the artwork is more poignant with the large, erect johnson included. It’s like an absurdist representation of society’s collective fascination with superficial masculinity.

Or, you know, it’s just a well-placed dick drawing.
