Banksy, Untitled (Surveillance Piece) / spraypaint
On August 1, 2014, this work, pasted to the side of a residential home in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, was painted over by an unidentified tagger.
Given the work’s vulnerability to graffiti and the elements, it had already been coated by a layer of protective paint. Restoration experts were called in, with a protective plastic cover to be placed over the piece for additional protection. The work is expected to be fully repairable.
