Alternative Street Art

Perhaps fed up with the publicity that Banksy is getting the Tate gallery in London has decided to put some of their art onto the streets of London, and you can call a number also displayed alongside the art that will give you more information on the piece; exactly like an audio tour in a gallery. Around 30 framed prints of some masterpieces are now in place around the streets of London and here are four I found completely by fluke today; two in Soho and two in Covent Garden. Its a very novel approach to getting people to see art they might perhaps not bother with but most people were walking past the pieces. I have a map of all the locations so I'll be doing another walk around London in the next few weeks to get some more prints.
