Two new Banksy murals have appeared on the walls of Barbican centre in London. Both pieces were confirmed on 17 September on Banksy’s Instagram account. The first piece depicts Banksy’s version “Boy and dog in a Johnnypump” by Basquiat. The second motive is possibly comparing the Basquiat exhibition with the London Eye tourist attraction. Jean-Michel Basquiat started his career as a street artist in New York.
Banksy’s announcement reads: “Major new Basquiat show opens at the Barbican – a place that is normally very keen to clean any graffiti from its walls”
