Banksy’s latest artistic intervention in North London has withered to an act of vandalism just three days after its surprise appearance.

 

The artwork, located on the side of a residential building on Hornsey Road in Finsbury Park, featured green paint sprayed onto a wall positioned behind a pollarded cherry tree, creating the illusion of leaves when viewed from the right angle. The world-renowned artist confirmed the piece as his own through a series of images on his Instagram account.

 

Local authorities have noted the defacement, revealing two white streaks splattered across the artwork. The incident has drawn condemnation from fans and art enthusiasts who have labeled it “wanton vandalism.”

 

 

 

Islington Council has responded swiftly, erecting a metal security fence around the mural and implementing increased patrols to deter further damage. While the council ponders restoration options, the damaged mural has become a curious attraction, drawing crowds eager to witness the latest sprouting in this Banksy saga.
