Gorilla Warfare


Pink Gorilla Mask landmark via Banksy
 Banksy ooooh how I love & admire thee. It’s a sad, sad shame one of his early stencil masterpieces was buffed, it was considered a landmark too many of the patrons of Eastville, Bristol. The building was a social club in the past but was recently renovated into a Muslim cultural center by the owner Mr. Ahmed. He stated to the associated press, ”I thought it was worthless. I didn’t know it was valuable. That’s why I painted over it. I really am sorry if people are upset.” He went on to say he will try to remove the whitewash. He is also hoping Banksy hears about the mishap, which is being blasted on twitter, & maybe he will replace it himself. As for now the wall looks as shown below.
