Streets: New Banksy x 3

Some new pieces from Banksy recently popped up on Wooster Collective yesterday at undisclosed locations although somewhere in the UK is a pretty good bet.

The latest artist to roll through Grottaglie is the Spain-based Escif, whose prolific work we are sure you are familiar with by now. More after the jump…
