British Surveillance Hometown Got Banksy treatment


A new a piece surfaced in the English town of Cheltenham and many believed its the work of the legendary Banksy.

It touches on themes Banksy has explored before, namely the “surveillance state,” with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer. The untitled artwork subverts a phone booth and satellite dish, adding shady Dick Tracy-esque men that are assumedly listening in on phone calls. As well as appropriating existing objects to make a point, Banksy has used geography — Cheltenham is the home of the UK’s surveillance agency, GCHQ.

No one claimed responsibility including Banksy but will update as soon as we hear something.
