I assume most of you have heard of Banksy. If not, trot off and read a little bit about this mystery man. Banksy
Before my somewhat truncated visit to Naples, I had read that there was a work of Banksy’s somewhere in Naples, and I was determined I would find it, no matter how long it took me. I didn’t have to look very far, it turned out to be just at the top of the street where my apartment was located! Huh, that took all the challenge out of the search. I ate a nice rhum baba, just for spite.
So, here’s what you will see, if you walk up Via San Gregorio Armeno. I never expected to be up close and personal with one of Banksy’s works. It’s kept well protected from the busy folks who graffiti every square millimeter of space in this city.
This image from street art in Naples shows how casually exposed the stencil was before it was given some protection.
Have any of you seen works by Banksy? I think they are to be found in many places around the world.
