Banksy: In Tesco We Trust

This new work by British street artist Banksy appeared on a pharmacy wall on Essex Road, about five blocks from our flat. The pharmacist has been forced to cover it with plastic sheeting to prevent it from being defaced by an anti-Banksy vandalist who has been destroying Banksy works around London.

 

Note to my fellow Americans: Tesco is the UK equivalent of Wal-Mart, a mega chain that has taken over the British landscape and pushed out Mom & Pop shops wherever it goes.
