    Default Graffiti artist Banksy creates his biggest work to date

    Banksy pulled off an audacious stunt to produce what is believed to be his biggest work yet in central London.

    The secretive graffiti artist managed to erect three storeys of scaffolding behind a security fence despite being watched by a CCTV camera.
    Then, during darkness and hidden behind a sheet of polythene, he painted this comment on 'Big Brother' society. Scroll down for more...

    Yesterday the scaffolding gang returned to remove all evidence - again without the camera operator stopping them.
    The work, above a Post Office yard in Newman Street near Oxford Circus, shows a small boy, watched by a security guard, painting the words: 'One nation under CCTV.'
    Andrew Newman, 35, a businessman from Dulwich, who works locally, said: 'It was only on Sunday morning that the Post Offices guys realised what had happened.'

    that's great...love it. i really like the message of his pieces. he's gotten so big lately, though. his stuff doesn't seem as unique as it used to.

    Words can't describe how much I despise this douche. The only clever thing he ever did was sabotage Banned's CD.

    he has done some great stuff. his work has a deeper meaning and looks a lot better than what's mostly sprayed on walls. *thumbs up*

    He's actually a ninja. It's the only thing that makes sense.

    Gah! I can't seem to post...testing... I give up. Here is the link: http://www.banksyny.com/ I tried to post the pictures here and on a new thread but it kept taking me to the home page. This is described as "An artists residency on the streets of New York".

    I think his stuff is really cute and clever. It's like he was inspired in the moment by unique features in the environment for a lot of these.
