Bye bye Banksy

According to tonight's 6pm news a clueless cleaner has painted over a Banksy in one Melbourne's laneways.  I guess if you're a cleaner and not a curator these things happen.  The news story reminded me that I took lots of pics of graffiti art in Barcelona because it seemed to express the essence of this design driven, vibrant city.    I also spotted this paper-cut girl hiding in an alcove in Niagra Lane (Melbourne) last week.   Whilst it might be illegal to paint and post such work, it contributes to making our cities interesting, savvy and unexpected.
