banksyAfter all the talk about saving Banksy’s recent IKEA piece, its owners have finally spoken up by ripping out the work. Hansom Premix, the company which owns the South London wall that Banksy vandalized, have cut and carted the painting away “to save it from further vandalism.” They’re not the first: other unintentional Banksy owners have put their property up for sale lest thieves take it for themselves. However, they are the only Banksy preservationists taking such extreme measures to save a defaced piece that was never intended to last. |Sutton Guardian|
