Banksy Defaced

Mild Mild West, the image that projected Banksy into the public consciousness in Bristol, has been defaced by a group describing graffiti artists as "the copywriters for the capitalist created phenomeon of 'urban' art."

The image, located in Stokes Croft, was defaced in the early hours of this morning by a group describing itself as Appropriate Media who lambast Banksy as a "spray-can monkey for gentrification" and of "[selling] his lazy polemics to Hollywood movie stars for big bucks."

Shall we expect tightened security at Crimes of Passion?
