The latest work by controversial artist Banksy is a mural ‘One Nation Under CCTV’ painted next to a CCTV camera at a Post Office yard in the West End of London. Banksy said”We could have put prints up for sale and made a fortune, but thatâ€™s not what this is about. We wanted people to be able to come here and have a go themselves.â€™
And when theyâ€™ve finished, theyâ€™re invited to take away whatever they like. â€˜We did a show where we gave away free canvases to kids a couple of years ago, and this is just a progression from that. Weâ€™re giving away a piece of wall instead of the canvas.â€™
French graffiti legend Blek le Rat, who wonâ€™t arrive until tomorrow. Banksy is a huge fan. â€˜Every time I think Iâ€™ve painted something slightly original, I find out that Blek le Rat has done it, too,â€™ he says, â€˜only Blek did it 20 years earlier.â€™

In January, a wall defaced by his spray can sold for Â£208,100. Everyone from Jude Law to Brangelina has his politically charged stencils on their walls
