Default New artwork by banksy in Birmingham England

Banksy has created a new artwork in Birmingham England close to my home. Itís a tribute to the homeless and shows two reindeer flying from a bench where a homeless man was sleeping.
The rail workers almost washed it off before realising it wasnít ordinary graffiti. Itís now been protected with a plastic cover so people can visit it

Very nice

Itís a real bench with a real homeless man sleeping on it. People can now go get their photo taken on that bench and all donations go to homeless charities.

His work is wonderful. I saw Umbrella Girl in New Orleans circa 2010. I believe it is the only one of Banksy's works left in NOLA.
