Banksy’s Latest Depicts Spying, Right Outside The UK Intelligence HQ

What’s alleged to be Banksy’s latest piece of artwork has popped up on the side of a house in UK town of Cheltenham, and it depicts security agents spying on a public phone — right round the corner from the UK’s intelligence centre, GCHQ. The piece is located just down the road from the UK’s Government Communications Headquarters — the home of all things intelligence on the other side of the Atlantic.

The graffiti appeared first thing on Sunday morning, reports the Gloustershire Echo. Karen Smith, who owns the house on which the artwork is painted, says she saw men packing away white tarpaulin into a van at 7.30am on April 13, and then discovered the artwork on the side of the building.

It’s not yet confirmed to be a Banksy, but it has all the style — and wit — that you’d expect from his work. [Gloustershire Echo via The Guardian]
