Banksy’s newest piece uses a quote from the movie, “Gladiator.” I definitely think this piece is directed towards the taggers, bombers, and haters of his residency thus far. You have a guy wiping away the paint, besmirching the image. And the line reads as something quite karmic, if you ask me. Banksy’s telling these guys (and all Banksy haters) that their destructive ways will manifest for eternity. What’s in your soul now, will be in your soul forever.
