A Banksy mural painted on the wall in Reginald Road Deptford. Banksy is a British street artist with an international reputation. His artworks are often satirical and on topics such as politics, culture, and ethics. His street art, which combines graffiti writing with a distinctive stencilling technique is similar to Blek le Rat, who began to work with stencils in 1981 in Paris and members of the anarcho-punk band Crass who maintained a graffiti stencil campaign on the London Tube System in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
