On Seel Street, Liverpool. I like the way layers build up around graffiti and as this street runs along the edge of a multi-million pound redevelopment I'm guessing that the whole lot might just disappear under a fresh lick of paint one day.

On a related subject, around the corner, it looked as if the council were painting over the Banksy cat/rat yesterday. Although they said they were only sprucing up "around" it and for some reason boarding up the bottom portion. It's the Capital of Culture clean up.

But of all the things to paint over.... I'd rather a giant cat that's become a local landmark than a council logo. Speaking personally....

This stuff isn't my cup of tea, but this has a certain charm. I'd have thought the other piece would have been included in some kind of counter-culture tour

Looks like he's wearing a stetson - I heartily approve.

I like these layers and layers of things. I just do not get it about Banksy in the UK. Doesn't anyone know that he is probably the most influential UK artist internationally right now?

OJ says:

Yes they do swamprose, to the point of being overhyped. What I'm talking about is probably a typical city council attitude though.

I cannot tell you how completely bizarre it is. Banksy books are huge sellers here, and he's probably the only UK artist most people could name.

someone better talk to these councils and tell them they are getting rid of attractions to their area.

Oh don't worry, they have been talked to. As I say, Banksy is just as popular and hyped here....but councils aren't necessarily that in touch.
