This new street art appeared a week ago and while there’s no confirmation that it is the handiwork of graffiti artist Banksy, it’s definitely his style. Since BBC News is now running the story, we might as well repost a photo of the work, which is located in north London on the wall of a Poundland store on Whymark Avenue in Wood Green. The image of the small child sewing decorations for the Jubilee is a not so subtle reminder that despite the celebration in the U.K. of the Queen’s Jubilee, the decorative trappings may well be the work of impoverished children and families who do the work in other countries.
The image below is from Arrested Motion. As always, thought provoking.
