In regards to interesting graffiti. I remeber as i was growing up in north London always going under a bridge on the North Circular Road, at around about palmers / golders green seeing some graffiti that read "Helen I will always Love you, steve" in huge white painted lettering. Every single time i went along that road year after year i saw this graffiti and as my first girlfriend was called Helen, i always wondered who this Helen and Steve were and weather they made it together or not.

Haven't been on that part of the north circular for about 4 years so i am not sure if it is still there but it up until then it had been for 20+ years

Is it a real BANKSY on the library wall. As this design has been used before, I guesss it is a copy.

I hope for the librarys sake it is a real Banksy so they can sell off to raise funds for their shortfall from the respective LA.

However I really cant understand all the fuss about Banksy & why people would spend 100's of pounds to own a piece of graffiti ?

Graffiti is a creative artform like any other... The element of illegality can be debated... Plus of course you may just think it's all s**t.

I quite like him though. :D

If I caught someone spray painting my blank wall I would beat the X%$p out of them unless it is Banksy as I could then sell on at a huge profit but as I dont know what he looks like he may get a bashing as well. But they do say that boxing is a creative artform too so thats alright anyway !

Has Bansky paid often overlooked Norwood a visit?

if it's on the library's walls adn it's a real banksy --- have we found the true funding for the Library? unless over-active (for once) Lambeth's officers come out to wipe it off .....

please Banksy - come and paint the outside of my flat so I can pay off the mortgage quickly!!!

Well, even if it is a real Banksy piece, the story says it will still be removed. Sigh.
