The Underconstruction crew perform as part of TimeOut‘s On the Up festival at the Vortex in Dalston, 2nd August.

Banksy for Bono

Another nice stencil spotted in our neighbourhood.

MaidThis is nicely positioned on the side of the White Cube gallery and directly in front of our favourite posh eatery, Cru. It’s one of a pair commissioned from Banksy by Bono for his editorship of The Independent but we like it anyway.
