A few weeks ago I made a post about street art in East London, which included this magnificent painting of a crane by Roa in Hanbury Street, Spitalfields, London. I now discover from The Gentle Author's latest post that the painting has now been hidden by a hideous, and totally superfluous, banner proclaiming: 'BANGLATOWN | BRICK LANE | CURRY CAPITAL 2012'.
A petition against the banner is now attracting attention. It can be signed by clicking on the link below. Also below is a link to The Gentle Author's post on the banner and more art by Roa, plus my original post on street art in this area.
