Banksy in Chicago



On Friday a picture was posted in the "outdoor" section on Banksy's website. The image appeared to show a new Banksy stencil piece with Chicago's own Sears / Willis Tower in the background. The work is classic Banksy and a visual nod to "The Untouchables" and "The Battleship Potemkin" . Or it could just be a pram rolling down some stairs. In any case, we have found the image and are thrilled to bring you the world's first detailed pictures of the piece. If you ask us nicely we may even tell you where it is located.




OK, we wouldn't be that mean. It's on the corner of Randolph and Peoria on the side of an Indian restaurant. Better go see it quickly before Mayor Daley's Graffiti Blasters destroy it forever.

Check out Banksy's work on his website banksy.co.uk and peep our Flickr for more pics.

  5. We've long been inspired by urban art and have finally created a collection that pays homage to this secret addiction of ours!
