Bansky: Street Artist, Angel

If you’re sour on street art in general, or Banksy in particular, this article from The Independent might change your perspective. “The water tank, the Banksy prank, and the later life of the homeless ‘elephant man’ Tachowa Covington” tells the tale of the unfortunate result when the legendary, controversial British artist painted “This Looks A Bit Like An Elephant” on the side of an old tanker off PCH back in 2011. I remember seeing it at the time. Turns out a man was living inside the tank until some art dealer types bought it and took it away to sell it. Banksy ended up putting the guy in a new apartment.
