Banksy - Chair smash (based on London Calling album cover

The Clashís London Calling album cover is widely considered to be one of the best album covers of all time. Its a photo that is far from technically perfect but it captures a moment of rage beautifully. Photographer Pennie Smith didnít rate the shot good enough because it was out of focus and Clash bassist Paul Simonon  quipped ďI wish Iíd lifted my face a bit moreĒ but thatís part of its appeal. Itís not perfect, itís done at speed and that looks true of this new Banksy piece on a pretty much always busy road directly opposite the headquarters of a large international news organisation.

Whatís it about? Well to me it looks like someone has had more than enough of the nine to five.

STATUS: Buffed
