Random Graffito of the Week
MaidFireplace.jpg

One of Banksy's most famous stencils - the maid of Chalk Farm - got an augmentation this week. Some japester of a joiner added a mantelpiece on Sunday evening. But street art is the most ephemeral of mediums, and the rogue fitting was removed faster than you can say chim-chimeny.

Fans of Banksy might like to visit the Andipa Gallery (or 'Galley' as they accidentally call themselves in the press release) on Walton Street, SW3 from 29 February to 29 March. The gallery will be putting together some of the artist's more iconic images along with previously unseen work.

Now, tell us how much you hate Banksy in the comments. It's traditional.

What a coincidence... I was just coming over to Londonist to search your archives about Banksy. Is there any website that has updated and, more importantly, specific information about where his stencils are in London?

Hmm, there's a guided tour book you can buy. And I'm sure I've seen a map somewhere. I might put one together sometime soon, like our wifi map.

The only problem is, once there's a book, the art's usually gone. I think Gridskipper should do something with this... Hmmm
