Glastonbury has a Banksy

I read about this in the local paper at the back end of last week, so I had to go and see for myself. For those who don't know, Banksy is a very well-known graffiti artist from Bristol. I say 'well-known', but actually nobody knows who he is. Of course, that also can't be strictly true, but I'm sure you know what I mean. He has taken simple graffiti into a totally new realm and I see his work as high art, and art with a message. 

Now Glastonbury has a Banksy. It is in Chilkwell Street, not far from the Chalice Well Gardens and has probably increased the value of the house it's painted on by quite a lot. 



For more of his work and more information, you might like to visit this website.
