Columbus At Broadway
By Banksy
A Mural and Graffiti Artist

By 2000 Banksy had turned to the art of stencilling after realising how much less time it took to complete a work. Banksy claims they changed to stencilling while hiding from the police under a rubbish lorry, when they noticed the stencilled serial number and by employing this technique, they soon became more widely noticed for their art around Bristol and London.

An artist wearing a gas mask had just written, "If at first you don't succeed - Call an airstrike."

The artist wore a baseball hat sideways on his head. That, and his shorts, made him appear as if on vacation.

Set back as it was from the roof's edge made it visible only from across the street.

The artist wore a bike messenger bag over his right shoulder. Spray paints were probably hidden in that bag.

This Banksy work was best viewed from the northwest corner of Columbus at Broadway. This shot was taken from the northeast corner and already the artist legs were lost from view.

Crossing the street, the mural vanished as one reached mid crosswalk.
